A. Personal Information You Provide to Us


  • Registration, Profile, and Other Information. When you sign up for an account or Event, we may ask you for your name, email address, and other information.

For example, when you contact us for more information about MotherDuck, we may receive your name, email address, the contents of a message or attachments that you may send to us, and other information you choose to provide.

If you subscribe to our newsletter, then we will collect certain information from you, such as your name, email address, and company name.
  • Prompts and Outputs. The Website allows you to submit text to the Website (“Prompts”), which generates responses based on your Prompts (“Outputs”). If you include personal information in your Prompts, we will collect that information, and that information may be reproduced in the Outputs.

We will collect the information you choose to provide on your resume, such as your education and employment experience. You may also apply through LinkedIn.
