Privacy Policy for Alexa Skills

Last Updated Date: Jan 11, 2020

This privacy policy describes how Learning Matters Private Ltd (“Learning Matters”, “us” or “we”) protects your (“you”, “the user”) privacy and your data. Before using any of our Alexa Skills (“our skills”), please read this policy and our Alexa Skills Terms of Use, as well as the Alexa Terms of Use and the Privacy Policies by the Amazon Digital Services LLC (with its affiliates, “Amazon”).

Regarding Amazon, “Alexa” means their Alexa Voice Service which includes third party services (like our skills) and other related Software.

If you use one of our skills you fully agree to this privacy policy.

 

1. General

When you use our skills you have to talk to Alexa. This voice input is sent to Amazon and Learning Matters, where we use it to understand what our skill should do for you. This is absolutely necessary for our services to give you an appropriate response.

2. Data

Learning Matters never collect or share personal data with our skills.

To improve our services we analyze automatically how often utterances are spoken and conduct other analytics. This is done automatically by Amazon in the Amazon Developer Portal.

For some of our skills it is necessary to save data in our databases. 

The skills are accessed with an user-id provided by Learning Matters. We associate the end user to the userid and collect the skill usage data in our database. We use such data to understand the progress of specific users and provide feedback or report to the users. 

Some of the user utterances include responses with personal information, such as the following:

  • name
  • age
  • family information
  • financial information 
  • school
  • address
  • place
  • friends 
  • hobby       

Such data is processed at Amazon Alexa services and the actual values are not received at Learning Matters. Such a model ensures that Learning Matters does not collect any personal information.

3. Changes

Our skills or part of it may change or be updated at any time. Further, this Privacy Policy might change too. You can find a link to this policy on the description page of the skill in the Alexa App or in the Alexa Store. Your continued use of our skill after changes of the Privacy Policy or the skill itself will be considered as your acceptance of both.
