At what point htmlpurifier is used?

I know my question is too obvious but after general googling and searching in this forum I haven't found a clear answer in the following question..

At which point in my application HTMLpurifier takes place?

Is it when a user submits data which I want to store in the database? Such as username, password and comment?

Or maybe I use it when I need to retrieve data from the database and show it on the user?

Or maybe both?

Since I am not too technical.. maybe I did not use the right words to query the forum.. So can you please share a link or so..?

Thanks in advance!
