Data Delivery Using S3

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

To set up for delivery:

  1. Sign into AWS S3 console
  2. Create a bucket for deliveries (e.g. s3://YOURCOMPANY-data-deliveries)
    2a. If you are using an existing bucket ensure 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 (something like YOURCOMPANY-data-deliveries) and hit 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 hit Save on the Bucket Policy page, AWS may not give a "Saved" notification message and also show the following message:

This message is normal for AWS but can be confusing. To confirm the new policy above is saved, refresh the page and see if the policy is still there.
