If you are applying to work with DataRobot, please see our Applicant Privacy Policy for additional information on how we handle your personal data during and after the application process.

Privacy Policy Updates

We may update the terms of this Policy at our discretion. We encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes.

  • Register for or attend an online or in person event sponsored by us
  • Submit an application to work for us

What We Collect

The types of information we collect from you may differ depending on how you interact with us.

Personal Data We May Collect from You

  • Your name, username, email address, postal address, phone number, and other contact information
  • Your employer, job title and other employment related information
  • Records of your correspondence with us or on our forums
  • Information you provide through other types of interactions, such as surveys, events, social media, or other communication with us

Personal Data You May Provide to Us

  • Device and connection information, including IP address, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language, and other transactional information
  • Approximate location information based on your IP address
  • Cookies and tracking technologies that analyze your interaction with our emails, use of the Websites, show traffic data, and log files such as time of access, date of access, software crash reports, session identification number, access times, and referring website addresses (see our Cookie Policy for more information)
  • User Metrics: When you use the SaaS version of the Solution, we may automatically collect and analyze data about your usage of the Solution using our User Activity Monitor. This data includes technical logs, frequency of logins, number of models deployed, and feature usage and engagement. For a full list of data points collected through the User Activity Monitor, please see User Activity Monitor Report Types (collectively “User Metrics”). When you use the on-premise version of the Solution, we can only analyze User Metrics if you provide those to us or the organisation that you work for provides those to us. The User Activity Monitor is also accessible to your admin user so that customers may review their own User Metrics. For SaaS users, in addition to the data points collected through our User Activity Monitor, we may collect user interaction and navigation data, including clickstream and mouse tracking. When we use User Metrics for any purposes other than those described below, it is anonymized of personal data and Customer Data in accordance with applicable law.

This includes data points such as dataset summary statistics, dataset size, project type, model accuracy metrics, run times, project and model flags or errors, specific models and blueprints run, and the parameters of such models and blueprints (collectively “Metadata”). When you use the on premise version of the Solution, we can only analyze Metadata if you provide it to us or the organisation you work for provides it to us. Metadata is always anonymized of personal data and Customer Data.

Personal Data We May Receive from Third Parties

  • Business contact information from third party providers, such as event co-hosts, B2B intelligence platforms, or your company, if the Solution is provided to you via your company
  • Publically available data from third party sources, like social media

How We Use Your Data and Legal Basis for Processing

How we use your personal data depends on how you interact with us. The specific purposes for which we use the data we collect about you are listed below. In some jurisdictions, including those subject to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) or UK General Data Protection Regulation (“UK GDPR”), we may only process your personal data when we have a legal basis to do so. Our legal basis for processing your personal data is listed with each purpose for processing below.

  1. To provide and support the Solution and Websites. We use your personal data to provide and support the Solution and Websites.

You may not opt out of these messages, as they are considered part of the Solution.
    Legal Basis for Processing: We may have a contractual obligation to you, or to your company, to provide you with access to and support for the Solution, which requires the processing of your personal contact data.

  • To create anonymous data for use in product development. We may remove personal identifiers from data containing personal information so that it cannot be traced back to an individual, and aggregate it by combining it with the data from multiple sources and/or individuals. We may use this data to understand feature adoption and feature gaps, make product depreciation decisions, and make product development decisions. When using collected data for product development, we will always remove all personal data and Customer Data.
    Legal Basis for Processing: We have a legitimate interest in creating anonymized data so that we can use that data to improve the Solution.

We may also use the information we collect about your device to detect users violating our MSA or Terms of Service and prevent further violations.
    Legal Basis for Processing: We have a legitimate interest in protecting ourselves and our users against unauthorized use of our Solution and Websites to ensure the security of the data processed within them. We are also obligated to process certain personal data to monitor compliance with our MSA and performance of other agreements we may have with you.
  • For compliance with law or to investigate legal claims. We may use your personal data to comply with applicable laws, lawful requests and legal process, such as to respond to subpoenas or requests from government authorities.

    Legal Basis for Processing: In certain rare circumstances, we may rely on compliance with a legal obligation or protection of vital interests in the event of a legal investigation or request from a law enforcement or governmental entity. As a global company, there are a wide variety of laws that might compel processing of your data under this legal basis, but they may include the following types of laws: civil and commercial laws, criminal laws, consumer laws, and corporate and taxation laws.
  • With your consent. In some cases we may ask for your consent to collect, use or share your personal data in ways we have not described here.
