Privacy Policy

Effective date October 17, 2022.

Welcome to the website (the “Site”) of Airbyte, Inc. (“Airbyte,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). Airbyte is a data infrastructure company offering a hosted ELT solution (the “Solution”) as well as an open source project and collaborative community (the “Community”), (collectively, including the Site, our “Services”). 

This privacy policy explains how we handle the personal information you may provide to us during your interaction with our Services. The information we collect, use, and process about you varies based on the Services you use, but you always have choices concerning our information practices across any of them as explained below. 

Before using our Services or submitting any personal information to Airbyte, please review this Privacy Policy carefully. By using our Services, you agree to the practices described in this Privacy Policy; if you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, please do not continue accessing the Site or otherwise using the Services.


Personal Information You Provide: We collect and are the controller of the following categories of personally identifiable information from you: 

  • Personally Identifying Information: We may collect your name, email address, phone number, mailing/billing addresses, and other personal information you provide to us when you create an account for the Service, participate in our Community, communicate with our support teams, fill out a form on our Site, submit a job application, etc.  
  • Social Media Information: We maintain a social media presence on platforms like Instagram, Facebook, Medium, Twitter, and LinkedIn (“Social Media Pages”). When you interact with us on social media, we may receive personal information that you provide or make available to us based on your settings, such as your contact details. In addition, the companies that host our Social Media Pages may provide us with aggregate information and analytics regarding the use of our Social Media Pages. 

Non Personally Identifying Information: When you visit, use, and interact with our Services, we may collect and are the controller of the following categories of non-personally identifying information:: 

  • Device Information: The manufacturer and model, operating system, IP address, and unique identifiers of the device, as well as the browser you use to access the Service. The information we collect may vary based on your device type and settings. 
  • Usage Information: Airbyte collects event-level information about the usage of our Services. For self-managed Airbyte instances, we track the usage unless you request that we do so at an aggregate level or otherwise disable usage tracking through code that we make available. 
  • User Experience Information: Information about how you engage with our Service, such as the types of content that you view or actions you take on our Site and Community, the features you use in our Solution, and the time, frequency, and duration of your activities. We use the following tools to collect User Experience Information:
  • Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC (“Google”) to help collect and analyze Usage Information. For more information on how Google uses this information, click here
  • Fullstory: we use Fullstory for user analytics and to assist with customer support. Fullstory enables us to create a de-identified screen recording of your experience on our Site or Solution, which we may review to improve our features, user experience, and to assist with troubleshooting. We have configured our use of Fullstory so that it does not record personal information you type into our site UIs, technical support chats, or surveys. If you do not wish to have your session recorded, you can opt out through our consent management tool.
  • Location Information: We may derive a rough estimate of your location from your IP address when you visit the Site.
  • Email Open/Click Information: We may collect the date and time you open an email communication from us or click on any links in the email and we or our service provider may associate this information with the email address we already have for you.

The following technologies may be used to collect the Non-Personally Identifying Information described above:

  • Cookies, which are text files stored on your device to uniquely identify your browser or to store information or settings in the browser to help you navigate between pages efficiently, remember your preferences, enable functionality, help us understand user activity and patterns, and facilitate online advertising. 
  • Local storage technologies, like HTML5, that provide cookie-equivalent functionality but can store larger amounts of data, including on your device outside of your browser in connection with specific applications.
  • Web beacons, also known as pixel tags or clear GIFs, which are used to demonstrate that a webpage or email was accessed or opened, or that certain content was viewed or clicked.

Personal Information We Process on Behalf of Our Customers: In order to provide our Solution, we process certain data on behalf of our customers. We process that data, including any personal information contained within it, pursuant to our agreements with our customers. We have no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal information we process in the course of providing our Service to our customers. If you are such an individual and have questions about the processing of your personal information or want to exercise one of your privacy rights, please contact the Airbyte customer that you interact(ed) with directly.

  • Direct Marketing: To send you direct marketing communications as permitted by law, including, but not limited to, notifying you of special offers and events via email and/or direct mail. In connection with our marketing activities, we may enrich the personal information you have provided to us through use of third party sales and marketing platforms or mailing lists we obtain through our event sponsorships, event participation, or partnerships.
  • Interest-Based Advertising: We engage advertising partners, including third party advertising companies and social media companies, to display ads on the Service and other online services. These companies may use cookies and similar technologies to collect information about your interaction over time across the Service, our communications, and other online services, and use that information to serve online ads that they think will interest you. This is called interest-based advertising. We may also share information about our users with these companies to facilitate interest-based advertising to our or similar users (known as a “lookalike audience”) on other online platforms. You can learn more about your choices for limiting interest-based advertising in the Limit Online Tracking section below. 


We do not sell, rent, license, or lease your personal information to third parties. 

In certain circumstances, however, we may share personal information without further notice to you, unless required by the law, with the following categories of third parties:

  • Service Providers: To assist us in meeting business operations needs and to perform certain services and functions, we may share personal information with service providers, including hosting services, cloud services, and other information technology services, email communication software and email newsletter services, advertising and marketing services, payment processors, customer relationship management and customer support services, and analytics services. Pursuant to our instructions, these parties will access, process, or store personal information in the course of performing their duties to us. We take commercially reasonable steps to ensure our service providers adhere to the security standards we apply to your personal information.
  • Professional Advisors: We may share personal information with our professional advisors such as lawyers and accountants where doing so is necessary to facilitate the services they render to us. 
  • Business Partners: We may work with other businesses to sponsor or host conferences or webinars, market related services, promote joint ventures or other similar collaborations. We might share information with our business partners in these situations. 
  • Business Transfers: If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, financing, reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, dissolution, sale of all or a portion of our assets, or transition of service to another provider (collectively a “Transaction”), we may share your personal information with counterparties and others assisting with the Transaction and with a successor or affiliate as part of or following that Transaction.
  • Legal Requirements: We do not volunteer your personal information to government authorities or regulators, but we may disclose your personal information where required to do so for the Compliance and Protection purposes described above.
  • Affiliates: We may share personal information with our current and future affiliates, meaning an entity that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with Airbyte. Our affiliates may use the personal information we share in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Community Sharing: Open discourse is what makes our collaborative community so great, and we are committed to facilitating it. This means that many portions of our Community are open forums for innovative developments, ideas, and information; information you voluntarily provide in our Community will likely be public-facing and we are not controllers of that information once it is shared. We strive to respect the privacy of individual community members and will minimize the information required to participate. We will also strive to ensure our Community is built on tools that meet our data protection standards and offer user privacy settings wherever possible. However, we encourage you to be thoughtful as to how you interact with our Community tools, how you interact with others in our Community, and the information you share within the Community forums (for example, through creating a public profile, project contributions, comments, and blog posts). 


We keep personal information for as long as reasonably necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, while we have a business need to do so, or as required by law (e.g. for tax, legal, accounting, or other purposes), whichever is longer.


Update Your Account Information: You can contact us and request any updates or corrections needed to keep your personal information accurate, current, and complete. 

Opt Out of Marketing Communications: You may opt out of marketing-related communications by following the opt out or unsubscribe instructions contained in any marketing communication we send you. 

Please note, however, that if you use our Solution, you will continue to receive service-specific communications, such as account or usage alerts and billing information.

Limit Online Tracking: Our Services that use online tracking technologies have banner notices and choice options that enable you to limit or block all or specific types of tracking technologies, such as cookies and web beacons. However, as we disclose in our banner notices, some of these technologies are functionally necessary for us to run our Services and you cannot disable them. 

Note that the opt-out mechanisms associated with online tracking are specific to the device or browser on which they are exercised. You will need to opt out on every browser and device that you use. We currently do not respond to "Do Not Track" or similar browser-based signals.
