SoapBox Labs is a kids first, privacy first company.
From the very beginning, we invested in a privacy-by-design approach to our data and technology with the goal of protecting kids’ voice data privacy.
SoapBox Labs is fully compliant with relevant data privacy and data protection regulations, including COPPA, FERPA and GDPR.
We are also an independent company with one mission only – to develop the world’s most accurate and private voice technology for kids. Our kids’ voice data will never be shared with, or sold to, third parties, and will never be used to support activities such as marketing and advertising.
“PRIVO has been working with SoapBox Labs since its founding in 2013. From the very beginning, CEO and Founder Dr. Patricia Scanlon has been committed to a privacy-by-design approach to building kids’ speech recognition technology. We’re proud to count SoapBox Labs as one of our esteemed customers and partners.”

In May 2019, SoapBox Labs collaborated with thought leader and anthropologist Dr. Veronica Barassi on this submission to the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.
“It wasn’t faster or cheaper to design-in privacy, but as a deep tech, kid focused company, success for SoapBox Labs meant respecting every kid’s fundamental right to privacy.”

In February 2020, COO Dr. Martyn Farrows published this guest post in Voicebot, the leading voice industry publication.
SoapBox Labs continues to advocate for the adoption of a privacy-by-design approach by all players in the voice technology industry, through blog posts, talks and articles.
