2. Using the Skill
The Skill allows you to receive information from and access to The PR Maven Podcast by using your Alexa-enabled device. Using the Skill consists of you speaking commands and questions aloud to your Alexa-enabled device, and then receiving responses from us through your Alexa-enabled device. When you use the Skill, Alexa relays your queries to iTunes, retrieves requested information and presents it to you. Any questions and commands given via Alexa will be treated as authorized by you. Any response Alexa provides will be given as authorized by you to do so. The services of Alexa are performed and controlled by Amazon, who, in order to provide and improve their services, may record and keep data on your interactions with Alexa and/or the Skill. By accepting this Agreement, you understand and agree that Amazon may perform said actions in order to provide and improve their services. For more information, please consult the relevant terms and conditions of Alexa, Alexa-enabled devices and Amazon.
