Privacy Policy

Effective from: January 19, 2023


We do not collect "personal information"

If information isn’t collected, it can’t be stolen, demanded, leaked or abused. Protecting your personal data is the best way to safeguard your online privacy.

How we define "personal data"

Our definition of personal data is based on the privacy laws and regulations of the EU, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). These are widely regarded as the strongest privacy protections in the world. We consider any information about you or your behavior that can be traced back to you as personal data.

Information we don’t collect

So let’s be perfectly clear:
• We don’t record your text entered in the app
• We don’t record your hardware
• We don’t record your IP address
• We don’t serve any tracking or identifying cookies

We don't record your questions

When you enter a question, your query is automatically stripped of unnecessary metadata including your IP address and other identifying information. We send the anonymized search query to OpenAI and return the search results to you. We don’t log your questions.

We don't analyze anything

We don’t measure overall traffic numbers or the amount of questions you have. So we can’t analyze your usage.

What happens to your data beyond *James* questions

Once your questions is answered and you closed the app all of your entered data is cleared.
*James*'s results are delivered in full privacy, provided by OpenAI Services..

We do not share or sell your contact information

When you contact us via email, we’ll use the contact information provided to respond to you.

Third Party Services

OpenAI: We may also use the OpenAI API to answer your question. Therefore, we send your question to the OpenAI API anonymously and without identifying you as a user. The data entered will only be used to answer the question on the server and will be discarded immediately afterwards. It is not stored. Further information can also be found in the OpenAI Privacy Policy (

How we respond to government requests for data

They can’t request what we don’t have. Any request will have to come from German judicial authorities. We’ll only comply if we’re legally obliged to do so. But we’re not likely to receive requests by governments to hand over user data – simply because we don’t have any.

We will never adhere to a voluntary surveillance program

Fortunately, we are based in the EU, where we have strong laws that protect your right to privacy. European governments can’t legally force service providers like *James* to implement a blanket spying program.

*James* is GDPR compliant

We are located in the EU, and we fully comply with applicable privacy laws and regulations of the EU, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). These are widely regarded as the strongest privacy protections in the world.
