We Care About Kids’ Voice Data Privacy

SoapBox Labs is a privacy-first speech recognition company.

From the very beginning, we invested in a privacy-by-design approach to our data and technology, with the goal of protecting every child’s fundamental right to voice data privacy.

SoapBox Labs is fully compliant with relevant data privacy and data protection regulations, including COPPA and GDPR-K.

We are also an independent AI company focused solely on building the world’s best speech technology for children. Our voice data will never be sold or shared with third parties, and will never be used to support activities like marketing and advertising.

“PRIVO has been working with SoapBox Labs since its founding in 2013. We’re proud to count SoapBox Labs as one of our esteemed customers and partners.”

What Is Privacy-by-Design?

Watch Dr. Martyn Farrows explain what we mean by a privacy-by-design approach to building voice technology.

Read our UN submission “Voice Prints and Children’s Rights” which explores the enormous potential of speech recognition for children, while explaining why a privacy-by-design approach is so important. This paper was written in collaboration with data privacy expert Dr. Veronica Barassi.

“It wasn’t faster or cheaper to design in privacy, but as a deep tech, kid-focused company, success for us meant respecting every kid’s fundamental right to privacy.”
