If you don’t believe us, here’s the exact clause: “Please be aware that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party through your use of Voice Recognition.”
“Please note that when you watch a video or access applications or content provided by a third-party, that provider may collect or receive information about your SmartTV (e.g., its IP address and device identifiers), the requested transaction (e.g., your request to buy or rent the video), and your use of the application or service,” Samsung writes. “Samsung is not responsible for these providers’ privacy or security practices. You should exercise caution and review the privacy statements applicable to the third-party websites and services you use.”
Well thanks for the warning, Samsung, but would it kill you to perhaps review the privacy policies of these third parties to ensure they aren’t doing anything overly creepy before you let them collect data from your users?
