Users can create their own classifiers with a name, description and names of each class. This information will only be visible to the user unless the user publishes the classifier. Texts sent for classification are not stored on our server with the exception of url requests where the text may occur in the log files (see below). If you train a classifier, we don't store your full training data we only store the minimum required data that the model need (bag of words).
