Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. We follow these simple principles:

  • Your Amazon account details are not collected by the application.
  • Your personal information is not accessible by the application.
  • Communication between the application and Alexa Voice Services (AVS) is done so directly.
  • Anonymous usage statistics may be collected by the application. These statistics do not contain any personally identifying information.

Alexa Authentication

In order to communicate with the Alexa Voice Service (AVS), the application is required to obtain an authentication token. This token is obtained by means of an industry-standard OAuth authentication process.

The application utilizes the LoginWithAmazon framework, which is provided by Amazon for the purpose of authenticating with Amazon credentials. When available, the Amazon application is used by this framework for automatic authentication. In cases where the Amazon application is unavailable, the framework loads an Amazon login page, where the user is able to authenticate and verify that the application is allowed to have access to the AVS scope. After confirmation, the application receives an authorization token, which is exchanged for an access and refresh token pair.

These tokens are stored in the iOS Keychain, a secure store provided by Apple on iOS.

Usernames, passwords, and other account details are never made available to the application, and are therefore never stored or transmitted by the application.

Aggregated Statistics

The application may collect statistics about usage and behaviors inside the application. For instance, the application may note the most popular features or screens to help determine future enhancements. These statistics are collected anonymously and are not made publicly available.

The application may utilize a third party service for collecting anonymous statistics.

Communication with Alexa Voice Services

The application communicates with AVS directly over HTTPS.

Audio recorded by the application is sent directly to AVS and does not pass through any additional servers. Recorded audio is not stored by the application.

Messages (including audio and directives) received from AVS are sent directly to the application and do not pass through any additional servers. Messages received from AVS are not stored by the application.

Privacy Policy Changes

This Privacy Policy may change from time to time, so users are encouraged to check this page periodically for any changes, since they cannot be notified directly. Continued use of the application after any change to this Privacy Policy will constitute acceptance of such change.
