Alexa Skills Privacy Policy and Terms

Privacy and Terms

This privacy policy describes how Digital Acorn makes use of and protects the information you give the company when you use Alexa voice skills.

Communication with Alexa will be treated by Digital Acorn as a communication authorised by you, and any communication back via the Alexa skill via voice, display-card or 3rd party in response to a request will be treated as a communication received by you.

You are responsible for all of the interactions with the Alexa voice skill. Please consult the agreements that you have in place with Amazon to ensure that you are using Alexa safely and correctly.

You activate and use Digital Acorn Alexa skills at your own risk.


Once you set up your Alexa voice skill, you are authorising Alexa to provide information to the skill. This means that you are responsible for how the Alexa voice skill is used, including any communication to or from the skill itself.

To prevent unauthorised disclosure or access to your information, we make use of Alexa’s (Amazon’s) physical and electronic security safeguards.


Digital Acorn does not collect or share personal information from our Alexa skills. We may however, log data which contains session data, or user-id’s provided by Amazon and retain this securely for debugging purposes. This data is not retained any longer than necessary and the unique user-id provided by Amazon is wholly opaque and cannot be used by Digital Acorn to identify you as the user.

Any personal information we hold about you is stored and processed under our data protection policy, in line with the Data Protection Act 1988.
