  • RIM And Other Mobile App Distributors Agree To New Privacy Policy Notification Standards



    The California Attorney General has struck a deal with the world's major app store operators that will see new privacy policy standards put in place. RIM, Google, Microsoft, HP, Apple and Amazon have all agreed to require any software that uses personal information to provide a privacy policy that can be viewed in the store before an app is downloaded. The agreement will bring the various markets in line with the California Online Privacy Protection Act, which requires developers provide such a policy. In addition to providing links to the relevant documents in an obvious and consistent location, the companies will have to offer a simple way for users to report devs that violate the rules.
