More questions than answers...
What is the current legal status concerning Amazon's collection of Alexa request audio? Are they supposed to delete all such audio after finishing a request?
I'm wondering if they want to save requests in order to better deal with future interactions. But they have to parse that audio during a request anyway, so presumably all they would need is the parsed data, not the actual audio.
Also, the fact that they freely disbursed the audio at all means they didn't consider it a big deal to have it in the first place. I'm totally confused. Did they save audio merely so they could comply, and if so, with what? Does the GDPR require this?
