Some Miitomo users might be curious as to what Nintendo does with the answers they provide. In a statement sent to Kotaku, the company commented directly on how the data is used.
It was explained that answers are merely a way “to provide a better experience for Nintendo consumers and to support the application.” The company added, “Neither Nintendo nor any of its partners sells or shares that answer information for any other purposes.”
Here’s the full statement:
The goal of our Miitomo questions is to spark fun conversations with your friends and for you to discover new facts about them as they answer the questions being posed. That’s why Miitomo generally avoids yes or no questions. As to the answer information our consumers provide through the Miitomo app, it is only used to provide a better experience for Nintendo consumers and to support the application. Neither Nintendo nor any of its partners sells or shares that answer information for any other purposes.
