How our data connections interact with your data

There are three main ways that data.world can interact with data from your environment:

  1. Metadata collection, including optional Technical Lineage Server

  2. Virtual query capability

  3. Data extract/import capability

Typically for the vast majority of security and compliance needs, (1) Metadata collection and (2) virtual query are sufficient, and (3) data extract/import can be optionally disabled. If only (1) and (2) are leveraged, data.world does NOT store data in our platform--only metadata.
