DeGore only collects data that is strictly necessary for the AI to function.
To nobody's surprise, DeGore has to temporarily get the link of the images sent in your server to have the AI validate whether it is SFW or not. This link is not stored (check Server Logging & False-Positive Reports below for exceptions) and is removed from memory as soon as the checking operation is complete.
Messages sent in chat are not collected or logged. Only some slash commands may have some data logged for debugging purposes. The logs are never stored and are automatically deleted shortly after, to protect your privacy.
Absolutely zero data is collected from Discord servers which could link to or identify you or the server you are in, in any way. We respect user privacy.
The only data stored is information that server owners enter themselves when signing up for DeGore Plus, which is encrypted and stored securely by our payment & subscription processors.
If a server administrator has configured custom logging channels for the server you're in, once DeGore detects and takes moderation action on an image, the link of the image which was deleted will be forwarded to the private logging channel. This allows human moderators to review the image which was sent and take appropriate action.
Note that DeGore will only forward the image link if a custom logging channel is set and is NSFW-marked. Otherwise, only the category predictions will be sent in an embed.
To opt-out of server logging, you must leave the server.
Only one member of the DeGore team has access to the debugging logs of the system which contain the image hashes and AI predictions. The image links are not logged (check the paragraph below for exceptions), and the image hashes cannot be converted back into an image. The logs are automatically deleted shortly after to protect your privacy.
If necessary, DeGore's developers may enable Debug mode, which may log some image links, server & user IDs temporarily. Again, the logs will be automatically deleted shortly after and will never be publicly shared. Debug mode is only used if we urgently need to locate and fix a bug with the bot or suspect that malicious and/or illegal behaviour is occurring.
If custom logging channels are set for the server you're in and the channel is NSFW-marked, once DeGore detects and takes moderation action on an image, moderators have the ability to report the image which DeGore deleted as a false-positive (incorrect) detection. DeGore will then prompt the moderator to confirm that both the user which sent the original image and the moderator themselves agree and consent to providing the DeGore team with the image for improvement purposes of both the AI and our algorithms.
It is the responsibility of the moderator reporting the image to ensure that they have adequate consent by the user to report the image to us. We are not responsible in any way for the actions of moderators in servers.
Once the moderator gets explicit consent and submits the image, the URL of the image in the logging channel will be instantly encrypted using a military-grade AES-256 bit encryption algorithm, and will then be stored (encrypted at rest) on our secure database. Note that our database is both password-protected and has IP restrictions, meaning that only whitelisted IP addresses can even attempt to connect - all requests from an unauthorized IP will be instantly dropped.
All encrypted false-positive reports are retained for a maximum of 1 year from the time of being added.
