However, she may not be sophisticated as to the technical issues of Alexa’s privacy. That said, Alexa’s terms of use do discuss that Alexa records and stores conversations. If anyone is a sophisticated user as to reading terms of use, lawyers should be the ones. Perhaps other professionals, less sophisticated in terms of use, such as doctors should lead an action for lack of duty to warn.
