In accordance with GDPR and other data protection regulations, Relative Insight can currently only process customer data that does not contain personally identifiable information (PII). The applicable excerpts governing personal data from the Relative Insight terms & conditions are noted below.

If a text data set contains sensitive personal data, we can advise on the best approach to cleaning the data prior to upload into the platform. However, Relative Insight takes no responsibility for the resulting data cleanliness based on such advice.

We recognize that some customers have text data that includes PII that they would like to analyze.

We are currently refining our processes and technology to allow the processing of data sets including personally sensitive data in accordance with GDPR and other applicable legislation. Please get in touch with your Account Manager if PII processing is something that you require.
