Under a heading explaining which personal information Sleep Number collects, the company, which makes smart mattresses with adjustable firmness, said it “may” collect “audio in your room to detect snoring and similar sleep conditions” as well as sleep-related data such as “movement, positions, respiration, and heart rate while sleeping”.
Michael Farrell [no relation] spotted the user agreement, a web designer and who spotted the clause, shared it on Twitter.
Farrell thought that the company may record audio through its companion app, which Sleep Number also denied.
“On the x12 model, the bed responds to pre-set voice commands that operate the bed and are not recorded. No Sleep Number products, including the app, record audio.”
However that product was never launched and the outfit is now working to clarify this in its policy statement.
