Does OPEN AI API use API data for training?

As said in my last post I’m feeding OPEN AI private data, which I would not like the model to be trained with.

currently im using embeddings and gpt 3.5 to ask questions

is the model being training on this data? if yes, is there any way to prevent that?

No, all data that you feed the API will not be used for training.

We do not train our models on inputs and outputs through our API.

Models - OpenAI API

Here’s the data retention specifics for stuff sent to the API, the policies are endpoint specific so some data is retained for a number of days before being deleted.

As they both said above though, API data is never ever used for training.
