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