Η Microsoft ενημέρωσε την πολιτική απορρήτου της για να δηλώσει ρητά ότι οι υπάλληλοί της ή άλλοι εξωτερικοί συνεργάτες μπορούν να ακούσουν τις ηχογραφήσεις από τα products Cortana and the company's Skype Translator.
The traffic comes after finding that company employees could hear the sound from both services, along with the sensitive personal data they contained. Apple, Google and, more recently, Facebook they seem to have done exactly the same with various of their respective products.
"We realized, from the questions we've been asked recently, that we could do a better job of clarifying that sometimes there are people who are looking at this content,” a Microsoft representative told Motherboard.
The company goes on to say how conversations made using Skype Translator are collected and used.
So in the Frequently Asked Questions of the product the company he says:
“This may include transcribing records sound from Microsoft employees and vendors, subject to procedures designed to protect user privacy, data that requires nondisclosure agreements with vendors and their employees and requires vendors to meet high privacy standards set forth from European law and elsewhere.|"
Microsoft, however, allows users to delete their recordings with one special electronic tool.
But while others Companies report that they have stopped that behavior, Microsoft says it will continue to use the recordings in the same way, at least for now.
