Regarding Amazon, “Alexa” means their Alexa Voice Service which includes third party services and other related Software.
When you use our skill you have to talk to Alexa. This voice input is sent to Amazon and us where we use it to understand what our skill should do for you. This is absolutely necessary for our service to give you an appropriate answer.
Here is how we handle your information when you use our services:
To improve our services we analyze automatically how often utterances are spoken and other analytics. This is done automatically by Amazon in the Amazon Developer Portal.
For some of our skills it is necessary to save data for you in our databases. This data is only connected to your Alexa-UserId but never to your name or any other personal information. In the case of the MyPlate skill, we save your baby’s date of birth so we can provide nutritional information specific to the age of your baby as your baby gets older. Otherwise, we could not provide you this service.
