SPHERO TOY SECURITY
BECAUSE WE WANT TO SET YOUR MIND AT EASE WITH THESE NEW-FANGLED TECH TOYS.
Our tech-centric, fast-paced world can sometimes seem like a crazy place. Social media, smartphones, and the next big breakthrough in convenience engineering make it easier and easier to put yourself out there for the world to see. We strive to keep our products out of the craziness.
As an industry leader in connected play, we consider your privacy to be of the utmost importance. We make sure to take proactive steps in protecting your personal information, as well as be transparent about our safety protocol.
WHAT’S THE FUSS ABOUT CONNECTED TOYS?
Connected devices sometimes come with privacy concerns, especially when it comes to toys and kids. The last thing we want is for someone to think our products are unsafe, your information is easily attainable, or recordings are being stored on a less-than-secure server.
We believe that privacy and security should be top of mind throughout the creation process, from a product’s inception to hitting the shelf. We strictly adhere to this practice, and while the tech world continues to evolve, so will our diligence.
