Dragon Dictation application does upload a user's contact names only (no phone numbers, email addresses, etc.) The data is used to optimize recognition when a user speaks a name while dictating text messages and emails. Search queries and dictation requests are transcribed by fully automated speech recognition software, without the use of humans. We ensure data integrity and security. All speech recognition requests and associated data are processed in data centers in the U.S. that adhere to stringent security and privacy standards; these are the same standards that we use for processing sensitive information in other areas of our business."

Sorry, paolo, when I saw the problem, I backed out and deleted the app. 
I THEN read the reviews at the iTunes Store and saw that I wasn't the 
only one disturbed by Nuance's sneakiness. I know, I SHOULD have read 
them first, but at least I'm not out any money.

Their "policy" you quote above is claptrap; the reason they give for 
violating people's privacy is specious.
