Taktok vacuums have no privacy, say critics
They also use your location to collect information about you and sell targeted ads.
But the policy does not require users to provide any personal information, and the company has never been held accountable for any privacy breaches.
Taktok also sells a variety of other devices, including a vacuuming app called Turntablack that doesn’t encrypt user data.
And the company says it is committed to protecting users’ privacy.
“Users do not have to give their consent for data collection or use, including the use of this data for any purpose,” Taktoko said in a statement.
“Our policies and practices are constantly being reviewed, adjusted and revised.
We are always working to improve our product and services, and will continue to take proactive steps to protect your privacy and security.”
The company is currently investigating whether to take legal action, according to Engadgets report.
