Privacy Policy

If you have any questions or feedback, please email us at!


  • If you enable "Privacy Mode" in Cursor's settings, none of your code will ever be stored by us or any third-party (except for OpenAI which persists the prompts we send to them for 30 days for trust and safety, unless you're on the business plan).
  • If you choose to keep Privacy Mode off, we may save prompts / collect telemetry data to improve the product.

Other notes

  • Even if you use your API key, your requests will still go through our backend! That's where we do our final prompt building.
  • If you choose to index your codebase, Cursor will upload your codebase in small chunks to our server to compute embeddings, but all plaintext code ceases to exist after the life of the request. The embeddings and metadata about your codebase (hashes, file names) are stored in our database, but none of your code is.
