What about my privacy?

We take data security and privacy issues very seriously. Please check our privacy policy to learn more.

Is my data secure?

If you save your data, charts or designs on Datylon's online dataviz platform, it will belong only to your account and you will have full control over it. Your data is treated as confidential while Datylon keeps all online user data in secure servers.

If you publish a project on our online dataviz platform, it can be accessed through a direct link with a unique ID. If you want to make sure nobody finds your visualizations, keep them unpublished and download them as PDFs, SVGs or images for private use.

When using Datylon for Illustrator, your data and visualizations are only stored in the Illustrator .ai files you edit. No data or charts are sent over the internet. This means you have full data security control.

You need an internet connection to activate your Datylon for Illustrator license when you start using Datylon for Illustrator for the first time. Thereafter no internet connection is needed until your license expires after which a new license check over the internet is needed.
