AI and Research Data Security: Paperpal Addresses Your Top Concerns

Research data security is paramount in today’s rapidly evolving digital age, where information is an invaluable asset. This is especially true for researchers and students, for whom fears of duplication, intellectual theft, misuse, or misrepresentation of their work looms large. It’s no wonder then that research data security is among the top concerns for academics exploring AI writing and language tools. With over two decades of experience working with academics, we at Paperpal understand the need to keep your work secure and are unwavering in our commitment to ensuring 100% research data protection.

At Paperpal, we don’t just talk about research data protection and safeguarding research; we live it, every day. Here, we proactively address some of your most pressing questions around research data security, explain our approach to data storage and protection of research data, and share news on an exciting new development on the horizon that will further enhance your Paperpal experience.

Before I share anything on Paperpal, I want to know how safe will my data be on your platform?

We know that your research is important to you, which is why we have multiple safeguards in place to ensure your data is processed, protected, and stored securely. We ensure complete research data protection with the latest ISO/IEC 27001- 2013 security certification, robust encryption, best network firewalls and servers, and strict access controls. Think of Paperpal as a mighty fortress where your research data is not just protected but nurtured and improved until you’re satisfied it’s the best version of your work.

Will my data or text enhanced by Paperpal be used further to train your AI?

We never misuse your data, so this is something you never need to worry about with Paperpal. Our proprietary large language models (LLMs) are trained on published academic articles and independent scholarly literature and continually learn how to give you the best outcomes, but we will never use any of the data or content you upload on our servers to train our AI models. Our commitment to research data security covers your articles, manuscripts, and any personal information, so rest easy knowing we’ve always got your back!

Paperpal’s team is also trained to identify possible threats and, in the unlikely event of a breach, immediately find and resolve any research data security issues.

I’ve shared my personal details with Paperpal? What measures do you have in place to ensure this is not leaked or sold?

Paperpal’s robust physical, procedural, and technical measures enable us to provide our users with the highest level of research data security possible. Paperpal retains your name and email until you deactivate your account or ask for this to be deleted. We have a strict privacy policy that prohibits the sale or sharing of your personal information with third parties, so rest assured your data is safe!

What happens to research data uploaded on your servers if I close my Paperpal account?

As part of our policies on safeguarding research, we ensure you, the author, have complete control over your data, including the copyright over any text generated through Paperpal Copilot.
