When Discord released its new AI-powered version of the Clyde chat, users also noticed that the company removed a clause from its privacy policy that said it would not store call, stream or channel content. Discord has now reinstated that clause, and also clarified how its AI tools would use and store data.

As reported by gizmodo, Discord’s privacy changes have left users worried, especially when combined with the release of new AI tools, including an improved version of Clyde that uses OpenAI, a new tool for creating conversation summaries, and the introduction of AutoMod AI. The changes were only live for one day, after which Discord reinstated the original privacy policy.

The policy now says: “We generally do not store the content of video or voice calls or channels. If we change this in the future (for example, to make it easier to moderate content), we will notify you in advance. We also do not store streaming content when you share your screen , but we keep the thumbnail cover image for streaming for a short time.”

In a statement sent to Gizmodo, Discord said: “We recognize that when we recently issued adjusted language in our Privacy Policy, we inadvertently caused confusion among our users. To be clear, nothing has changed and we have put the language back into our Privacy Policy. , together with some additional explanatory information.” For starters, the company didn’t explain why the language was removed from the policy.

Discord also updated its blog post about new AI tools explaining how they do and don’t use user data. “Our AI features use OpenAI technology, but OpenAI cannot use Discord user data to train its general models. Like other Discord products, these features can only store and use information as described in our Privacy Policy, and do not log , stores or uses any content of users’ voice or video calls.” The updated paragraph ends with Discord again committing to notify users in advance if this policy is to be changed.
