Privacy & Security

AudioEye takes seriously the security of each of our clients and has a duty to protect every visitor requiring assistance via the Reader embedded within our Clients' websites. For this reason we never store any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) on our platform.

Additionally, because AudioEye delivers it’s solution via JavaScript and transforms all text to speech on the fly, there is no “second copy” of an audio version of a website. For content on non-secure sites we do leverage audio caching to improve the playback of commonly requested copy.

When the AudioEye tools are installed on a secure domain, AudioEye simply provides an audio overlay to the real-time information present on the site. All text transmitted to AudioEye for speech conversion is done via a secure Verisign TLS/SSL channel. To ensure the highest standard of security, no audio is cached for secure sites.

When dealing with secure forms, AudioEye is simply generating one-time use audio files that describe the behavior of the forms. The form submission is securely processed through the Publisher’s original secure infrastructure, and all data is communicated securely between the client and the Publisher’s server(s) as would be the case if the AudioEye product was never installed.

In order to provide the text-to-speech conversion of data input into a form, a secure Verisign TLS/SSL channel is established between the Client system and the AudioEye cloud-based speech engine. Text data is transmitted securely to the speech generator, immediately converted into an audio stream, and delivered back to the client system via the same encrypted channel.

Raw form input data sent to the AudioEye platform for speech conversion never contains a reference to the original form being populated.

In summary:

  • No secure text is ever stored on the AudioEye Ally Platform
  • No form input data is ever stored on the AudioEye Ally Platform
  • No Personally Identifiable Information (PII) will ever be stored on the AudioEye Ally Platform

AudioEye will gladly discuss any client-specific security concerns. Contact us today to setup a meeting with our security professionals to address any questions you might have regarding privacy and security.
