Is Scribe a secure way to capture images?

Scribe prioritizes data security. We use the OpenAI LLM APIs, which have a strict set of limitations on how data can be used.

We do not allow OpenAI to use your data to train our or their models. All data is discarded after 30 days, so it is processed but not stored by OpenAI and is only used for purposes of service provision.

Finally, OpenAI has a signed data protection agreement with Scribe that binds the vendor to the same or more rigorous security controls that Scribe implements (e.g., data encryption, backups and retention measures, etc.).
