Data Processing & Data Retention

BriefCatch 3 uses real-time data streams to process documents on secure servers. The server returns only the results of the scan. We do not—and our vendors, including Google, do not—collect, log, or retain the original document text nor the text from the scan. No one can view any of the original document text or the text from the scan, including during the scan itself.

All connections to and from BriefCatch are encrypted using TLS 1.2/1.3.

PII & User Data

We log limited user data, such as user settings within the app and basic user information like name and email address. None of the data we collect allows us or any other party to reconstruct the text from your documents.

Any company or user can submit a support request to remove their data entirely from BriefCatch.
