Data Delivery Using S3

Our preferred mode of delivery is through Amazon's AWS S3 service.

To set up this delivery, do the following:

  1. Sign into the AWS S3 console.
  2. Create a bucket for deliveries (for example, s3://YOURCOMPANY-data-deliveries).
    2a. If you are using an existing bucket, ensure that Requester Pays is disabled.
  3. Modify the bucket policy in the Permissions tab.
  4. Paste the following into your permissions and replace {{your bucket name}} with your new bucket name (for example, YOURCOMPANY-data-deliveries) and click Save.
    "Version": "2012-10-17",
    "Statement": [
            "Sid": "People Data Labs Bucket Permissions",
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Principal": {
                "AWS": "arn:aws:iam::556708831556:role/pdl-customer-deliveries"
            "Action": [
            "Resource": [
                "arn:aws:s3:::{{your bucket name}}",
                "arn:aws:s3:::{{your bucket name}}/*"
  1. Email [email protected] with your bucket URL.

Note on S3 Saving

When you click Save on the Bucket Policy page, AWS may not provide a "Saved" notification message and may also display the following:


This is a standard AWS message but for some it can be confusing. To confirm the new policy above is saved, refresh the page and check if the policy is still there.
