Well, I don't know if I put this in the correct spot or not. Moderators, please move if you feel it belongs elsewhere.
The other day I found myself in the unenviable position of having to read sensitive personal information. I have several apps on my phone that can do this. Just for the halibut, I decided to ask Microsoft some privacy questions regarding Seeing AI. My specific questions were:
1) Who has access to the data we submit to be processed by Seeing AI?
2) For how long?
3) What happens to the data we submit, ie, is it stored, discarded, &, if stored, for how long?
The answer was pretty (no, *really*!) nondescript, as follows:
"Thank you for your message. At Microsoft, we have a long tradition of commitment and investment in consumer privacy. Our products and services offer a number of controls and resources, including a privacy dashboard (you will need to log in) to enable our users to access and control their data. You can also visit the Privacy at Microsoft page to read our privacy commitments to customers and find additional resources."
Maybe no one but myself cares. The problem is, of course, I'd hate to use 1 of these apps to read sensitive info & find myself dealing w/identity theft a short time later as a result. & sometimes, unfortunately, we have no choice but to pass sensitive information to these apps now & again. It would be nice to at least know what their policies are regarding it.
Happy 2 weeks before Christmas. Lol.
