What happens to CSV files that I open? Are they uploaded to a server?

I have some sensitive data on my local drive, and I want to know where exactly it is stored when I open the file in Datagrok.

When you open a local file, it stays on your local computer in the browser, utilizing our in-memory database.

Nothing gets uploaded on our server, unless you explicitly choose to do so via the UPLOAD button in the upper right corner. Most of the built-in analyses and visualizations work locally as well.

However, when invoking functions implemented in R or Python, as well as training models, the corresponding data slice gets transferred to our compute server, where calculations are performed. No one has access to that data, and it’s deleted right after the task is done.

For enterprises, compute servers will be located inside the network, so the data never leaves the company.
