Supported Entity Types

Private AI supports over 50 different entity types, covering the GDPR, CPRA, HIPAA Safe Harbor, and Quebec Privacy Act. The complete list of supported entity types can be found below, including regulatory compliance information for each entity. The GDPR's distinction between personal data and sensitive data is also reflected below, with the categories GDPR and GDPR Sensitive, respectively. Sensitive data is a more restricted subset of personal data that cannot be processed without a documented, lawful reason, according to Article 9 of the GDPR. In general, we recommend using the broader category, GDPR.

Note that an entity can have multiple types and that some entities have subtypes, such as DATE and LOCATION. For example, LOCATION_CITY is a subtype of LOCATION. In a phrase such as I live in Boston, therefore, Boston will be detected as both LOCATION and LOCATION_CITY.

Some entity types are groupings. For example, the HIPAA Safe Harbor entity types health plan beneficiary number and medical record number are both recognized as HEALTHCARE_NUMBER. Similarly, NUMERICAL_PII covers a broad range of entity types such as MAC addresses and cookie IDs.

In addition to our standard entities, our Pro Tier offers custom entity types.
