      Does Gridly use my personal data to train OpenAI data?

      No, we are using OpenAI API and do not opt-in to share data for training purposes. Your input data will not be learned by Open AI. 

      OpenAI Chat Generation will store your prompt for a maximum of 30 days for abuse and misuse monitoring purposes. The OpenAI API is SOC 2 Type 2 compliant. For detailed information, please following this article:


      What are tokens and how to count them?

      According to OpenAI, tokens can be thought of as pieces of words. Before the API processes the prompts, the input is broken down into tokens. You can use this Tokenizer tool to calculate the number of tokens of your prompt. Here are some helpful rules of thumb for understanding tokens in terms of lengths:

      • 1 token ~= 4 chars in English
      • 1 token ~= ¾ words
      • 100 tokens ~= 75 words


      • 1-2 sentence ~= 30 tokens
      • 1 paragraph ~= 100 tokens
      • 1,500 words ~= 2048 tokens
