Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy updated on 21st August, 2023


Patent Assist is committed to safeguarding your privacy. This privacy policy outlines how we collect and utilize information from our users. We value your trust and ensure that your information is used only as specified herein.

The Information We Collect

We collect information primarily through the Patent Assist website. This may include your name, billing details, email address, and employer name. We do not retain payment information; instead, we rely on PhonePe for secure payment processing.

We also collect information pertaining to your interactions with our website and your engagement with hosted services. This encompasses activities on Patent Assist products, standard website server log information (IP address, etc.), visited pages, actions performed, engagement with our newsletters and social media content, and demographic data.

In addition, we may source information from publicly available outlets, such as publicly accessible patent data and other publicly available profile and intellectual property resources.

During the course of handling confidential invention/ patent-associated documentation, including patent applications accompanied by invention disclosure, provisional patent, complete specification reports and other finalized patent drafts, we undertake this process in a transitory capacity. The substantive content of your invention/patent-related documents or finalized drafts derived from AI generation using our isolated models, and further proofreading, modifying and ommiting in our editor is only maintained temporarily and not stored indefinitely. Once the user chooses to delete the data, it is deleted from everywhere beyond recovery. We might, however, generate statistical data concerning time spent on proofreading AI generated content, such as quantifiable instances of editions, ommisions and additions detected within patent documents.

Moreover, we assure that all the Patent Drafts (both provisional and complete) and Invention Disclosure Forms (Including PDF, Invention Images etc.) are securely stored within our cloud based systems on Azure Servers. We routinely perform assessments of our data pipelines to identify and mitigate any potential instances of data leakage either into or out of our systems. These forms remain confidential and are not divulged to any external party. Such information is exclusively preserved for the internal purpose of processing and preparing outputs using the AI model.

Use of Collected Information

The information we gather serves a variety of purposes for our business operations, including:

We may acknowledge your company as a customer unless you opt out by contacting us directly.

Like most websites, We use cookies to enhance your browsing experience and ensure the security of your account. These cookies allow us to save your login sessions and keep you logged in during your visit to our website. By continuing to use our website, you consent to the use of these cookies for the purpose of maintaining your session and providing you with seamless access to your account.

We enlist the services of reputable third-party entities that prioritize personal information protection. Information may be shared with these third-party providers as required for the functions delineated in this policy. Some examples of such services include PhonePe, Google (G Suite, Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, and Google Optimize), LinkedIn.

In compliance with legal obligations or the enforcement of our terms of service, we might share your personal information.

However, the content of your invention disclosures, patent documents or finalized drafts can only be accessed by you, using your login credentials and will not be shared with any third parties, except for processing purposes in a transitory capacity on Microsoft Azure. Furthermore, all data gathered for processing intentions will exclusively be stored within data server centers located in India. For further details about their policies, please refer to Microsoft Azure’s trusted cloud privacy note.

The information contained within your patent documents, specifically the data contained in the Invention disclosure form and selected sections of the composed complete specification report, will be transmitted to “Isolated AI Models” which are hosted securely on Azure for processing purposes. However, it is important to note that this data will not be utilized to train any models, either yours or others, in the course of employing the processing API. For additional details, please consult the API data privacy page provided by Azure API service.

Beyond the aforementioned services, in rare and unintentional cases where our website directs you to external websites or services which are not aforementioned, we wish to emphasize that we bear no responsibility for data protection measures pertaining to those external services.

We use only publicly avaiable data exclusively for the purpose of training our own proprietary AI model. This model focuses on analyzing publicly available patent documents that have been published or granted only. Our training processes do not involve the storage or utilization of proprietary, confidential, or undisclosed patent information.

By availing our services, you acknowledge your understanding of the privacy policy and provide your consent to its terms. Should the existing privacy policy prove unsatisfactory in any manner, kindly reach out to us via email to initiate a request for a revision of the said policy. Please feel free to contact us with any inquiries or concerns about your data usage or our privacy practices. We value your privacy and are dedicated to maintaining the security of your information.
