Doll Listens and Reports to

Print

If you want everything you say to be recorded and sent to a firm in the USA, then sold to marketing, defence contractors and more, consider buying a "connected" toy this holiday season. If you don't like that idea, stay away from "My Friend Cayla" and "i-Que". 

Anything the child tells the doll is transferred to the U.S.-based company Nuance Communications, who specialize in speech recognition technologies. The company reserves the right to share this information with other third parties, and to use speech data for a wide variety of purposes.
