OCR Technology: GDPR Compliace

Hello Community,

Recently, I’ve been looking onto OCR(Optical Character Recognition) Tool from a security perspective and how user data is treated, especially when leveraging embedded in Studio OCR Engines. As far as I understand, when utilizing Google/Microsoft/Abbyy engines the data or simply PDFs are sent over to their servers and processed after.

I would like to know if my assumption is actually correct and if OCR Engines in Studio are GDPR compliant per see.

I’d be most grateful for your feedback. Thank you!
