    General information about the BAB TECHNOLOGIE Service for Amazon Alexa

    The BAB TECHNOLOGIE Service works according to the principle of data economy. No data are collected or stored that allow conclusions to be drawn about usage habits or personal preferences. In this way we try to distinguish ourselves from other services that use such services primarily for the purpose of collecting personal data. It is only stored what is absolutely necessary to be able to offer you this service. No data will be passed on to third parties. Individual commands about the service are only kept in the memory until they have been processed by the respective terminal device. If the terminal device is not available at the time the command is received, it is discarded immediately. In addition to data processing by the BAB TECHNOLOGIE Service, the usual data processing for the product is carried out by the manufacturer of the respective language assistant. To what extent Amazon® collects and stores your usage data is beyond our control. You can find official information from the provider's privacy policy:

    https://www.amazon.de/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=hp_left_v4_sib?ie=UTF8&nodeId=201566380

     

    Which data is stored?

    In order to be able to offer this service, we must store a minimum of personal data. In order for Amazon   Alexa to forward requests to your device, we store the serial number of the device in conjunction with the ID of the Amazon account you used to sign in to the BAB TECHNOLOGIE Service. The account ID is specific to this application and does not give us any further information about you. We do not save your name or e-mail address.

    The procedure:

    • Your device (APP MODULE or EIBPORT) logs on to the BAB TECHNOLOGIE Service with previously exchanged security and identification features (APP or SECURITY TOKEN) and keeps a "channel" open to accept inquiries.
    • Amazon® reports an inquiry (query of the devices or a concrete switching command) to the BAB TECHNOLOGIE Service.
    • Using the security information that accompanies the request, we determine the previously mentioned account ID
    • This account ID is used to identify your device (APP MODULE or EIBPORT).
    • If the device is connected to the BAB TECHNOLOGIE service, the request is forwarded to your device.
    • The device processes the request and creates a corresponding response, which in turn is sent back to Amazon via the BAB TECHNOLOGIE service.
    The data resulting from the exchange between Amazon® and your device is not stored. Exceptions are only program errors or unexpected messages and reactions, some of which are written to a log to enable error correction. There is explicitly no evaluation of the content of your voice commands! The only evaluation takes place via the statistics that Amazon® produces without our intervention. Among other things, the usage frequency is executed there over time by different command classes. These statistics are, however,   anonymized and summarized for all customers, and thus do not allow us to draw any conclusions about personal details.
