Privacy Policy

For TypingMind.com Static Chat App

How we handle your data for free users:

  • All of your data include API keys, chat history, chat messages are stored locally on your browser (using Local Storage).
  • The entire app is a static website, we don't have a backend server to collect data to the server side.
  • When you send a message on typingmind.com, the website sends a request to OpenAI API endpoints using the API key you provided.
  • Requests are sent directly from your browser to OpenAI's server using secured transport protocol HTTPS. There is no middle server and no one else can see the requests, responses and their content.
  • For Anthropic models, requests are proxied through TypingMind proxy server to Anthropic's server. This is because Anthropic doesn't support direct request from your browser. We don't log and store any data from the requests. The proxy server purely forwards your request to Anthropic's server and does nothing else. For maximum privacy, you can setup your own proxy server for Anthropic models by going to the Setting panel (click the gear icon) → Advanced Settings → Anthropic Chat Completions Endpoint.
  • There is strictly no external JavaScript run on TypingMind.com.

How we handle your data for paid users:

Privacy policy for paid users are the same as free users, with the following additional points:

  • When you purchase a license key, we store your email address and the license key in our database. We use this information to send you license key and to verify your license key when you use it on TypingMind.com.
  • When you enter the license key to unlock the premium features, TypingMind.com will send a request from your browser to our License Server to verify the license key and get the information about the license key's owner to display on the app.
  • When a new version of TypingMind.com is available, we will send you an email to notify you about new features and updates. You can unsubscribe from the email list at any time.

Third-party services we use on typingmind.com:

  • We use Vercel Analytics by Vercel.com to collect anonymous analytics data (like how many visitors a day, etc.). This data is only collected from TypingMind.com and not from the self-hosted version.
  • We use Sentry by Sentry.io to collect anonymous crash log and error reports from the application. This information helps us to improve the app and fix bugs.
  • We use lemonsqueezy.com to process payments for our premium features. We don't store any of your payment data.

For TypingMind Cloud:

  • TypingMind Cloud is an opt-in only service we provide to help you conveniently share your chat conversation with friends via a link that is publicly accessible from the internet. Other features include sync chat history between devices and backup chat history.
  • TypingMind Cloud is integrated to TypingMind.com and will only work when you explicitly use the Share/Sync/Backup feature, and pick TypingMind Could as the Share/Sync/Backup option. You will be asked to opt-in to TypingMind Cloud.
  • Note that you can use other services to share and sync your chat. TypingMind Cloud is just one of the options and is not mandatory.
  • When you Share your chats/plugins/AI characters using TypingMind Cloud, we will store your the data you shared on our server. And it will become publicly available on the internet with a secret link. These links are prevented from being indexed search engines.
  • We only store the chats that you shared, we don't store any other data on TypingMind Cloud's server (no API Key, no License Key, no other chats).

For TypingMind via Setapp

Note: this section only apply to you if you use the TypingMind via Setapp at https://setapp.com/apps/typingmind.

  • The version of TypingMind you download from Setapp is the exact same version as the one you use from TypingMind.com.
  • The Setapp version comes with a free access to the GPT-3.5 model, which is included in your Setapp subscription. This model is shown in the app under the name: "Setapp (GPT-3.5)"
  • When you use the Setapp (GPT-3.5) model, you don't need to provide any API key. The app will automatically use the API key provided by Setapp so that you can use the model for free. This means all of your requests to OpenAI when using this model are proxied to TypingMind's proxy server and Setapp's server. The proxy server's sole purpose is to hide away the secret API key and apply rate limits to abuse and for other security purposes. We don't log or store any of your chat data on our server. Please refer to Setapp's privacy policy for more information on how Setapp manage your chat data.
  • When you use the other models that are NOT Setapp (GPT-3.5), your requests will be sent directly from your local device to OpenAI/Anthropic without any proxy or intermediate server.
