In cases where the processing of personal information is not central to the purposes of processing for the below AI/ML activities, Oracle will limit the use of personal information when technically possible or feasible. ‘Dataset’ refers to a set of data that may contain this limited personal information.

We use personal information for the following business purposes:

    Example: Oracle provides our eCommerce platform customers with flagging functionality that enables customers to see that inventory is low for a certain good in the customer’s product catalog. Using AI/ML processing under this Privacy Policy, Oracle can now help predict when the inventory may be low in the near future so the customer can take action before the inventory becomes low.

    Oracle processes datasets to detect, prevent, or predict malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity on Oracle sites, networks, and systems, as well as on Oracle products and services used by our customers. AI/ML activities, subject to this policy, allow Oracle to provide more intelligent and predictive functionalities to investigate, prevent, or predict malicious activity, fraud, or bad actors.
