Find anwers to your questions about content analysis for your Creative Cloud and Document Cloud apps.
Adobe may analyze your Creative Cloud or Document Cloud content to provide product features and improve and develop our products and services. Creative Cloud and Document Cloud content include but aren't limited to image, audio, video, text or document files, and associated data. Adobe performs content analysis only on content processed or stored on Adobe's servers; we don't analyze content processed or stored locally on your device.
Let's say that you access Creative Cloud or Document Cloud via a personal account and prefer that Adobe doesn't analyze your content to develop and improve our products and services. In that case, you may turn off content analysis at any time from your Adobe account(see details and exceptions later).
Adobe primarily uses machine learning in Creative Cloud and Document Cloud to analyze your content. Machine learning describes a subset of artificial intelligence in which a computing system uses algorithms to analyze and learn from data without human intervention to draw inferences from patterns and make predictions. The system may continue to learn and improve over time as it receives more data.
We use machine learning to develop and improve our products and services, enabling us to deliver innovative and cutting-edge solutions. We also use machine learning to provide product features and customize our products and services.
Machine learning-enabled features can help you become more efficient and creative. For example, we may use machine learning-enabled features to help you organize and edit your images more quickly and accurately. With object recognition in Lightroom, we can auto-tag photos of your dog or cat. In Photoshop, machine learning can be used to automatically correct the perspective of an image for you. With Liquid Mode in Acrobat, we optimize the readability of a PDF by, for example, automatically enhancing a document's headings and tables to help you more easily scroll through and read dense documents.
Machine learning-enabled features are also used to make context-aware suggestions. For example, if you're working on a UI mock-up, Adobe XD might automatically suggest certain buttons. This content-aware suggestion can become more relevant to your work when Adobe XD learns from your specific usage and content. Content-Aware Fill in Photoshop also analyzes your image and predicts the correct content to insert in a selected area. And in Acrobat, we can still provide search suggestions despite misspelling a search term.
Adobe may analyze your content that is processed or stored on Adobe servers. We don't analyze content processed or stored locally on your device. When we analyze your content for product improvement and development purposes, we first aggregate your content with other content and then use the aggregated content to train our algorithms and thus improve our products and services. If you don't want Adobe to use your content for these purposes, you can opt-out of content analysis at any time (see details and exceptions described).
In limited circumstances, we may manually review your content for product improvement and development purposes in the following situations:
Our manual review process includes safeguards to help protect your privacy. If you submit non-public content for manual review, we will perform the manual review with personnel subject to confidentiality requirements and privacy training.
Adobe takes your privacy seriously. Your privacy is maintained during content analysis for product improvement and development. None of your content is included in our products or services unless you make them public (for example, contributions to Adobe Stock and Behance). The insights obtained through content analysis will not be used to re-create your content or lead to identifying any personal information.
You can find an overview of how Adobe may use your information (including content) in the Adobe Privacy Center.
You can turn off content analysis at any time if you're a customer accessing Creative Cloud and Document Cloud products and services via a personal account. (This setting doesn't apply to organization or school accounts, which are governed by your organization or school’s agreement with Adobe.) Turning off content analysis doesn't affect your ability to use any features.
If you don't want Adobe to analyze your content in the manner described, take the following steps:
Turning off content analysis doesn't affect our ability to analyze your content when you participate in programs where you proactively submit content to develop and improve our products and services. If you don't want your content to be used for such purposes, you should avoid participating in those programs, including but not limited to:
Additionally, if you use features that rely on content analysis techniques (for example, Content-Aware Fill in Photoshop), your content may still be analyzed when you use those features to help improve that feature.
