Clearview Data Policy

This page presents you with information on how we gather and use images from the Internet. We want members of the public who request data access to be fully informed about how Clearview operates.

We do not collect information about anyone's name, email address, home address, location or any other type of information beyond photos and the links where they appear. We do not combine photos with other sorts of data to link them to a particular person—we only use our search technology to find images that are similar to one another, and the locations they appear online.

Automated Decision-Making Process Statement

Clearview’s search functionality uses a proprietary algorithm to identify similar images and present them to a human user for evaluation. Clearview search results are indicative of similarity, not definitive. Clearview users are contractually prohibited from using Clearview search results as the basis of an identification or a legal determination of any kind.
