We are constantly working to improve our Features to make them more accurate, reliable, safe, and beneficial. Given the probabilistic nature of machine learning, use of our Features may in some situations result in incorrect Output that does not accurately reflect real people, places, or facts. You should evaluate the accuracy of any Output as appropriate for your use case, including by using human review of the Output.

    Short version: You own the Input and we own the Output. We may use the Input to provide and/or maintain the Features or the Services. The Output may not be unique to you. The Output may not be accurate or reliable and you should evaluate the Output as appropriate for your use case.
