With close to 1 million apps helping us work, play, and search for restaurants, mobile apps have become crucial to our daily lives. As users, we are starting to think about the data these apps are collecting. What happens to it: Do you publish my location? Do you sell my profile to advertisers so I can play your game for free? Privacy policies are there to answer these questions honestly.
Developers don’t want to upset their users. They want to do it right. But there are not many resources out there to help them figure out how. A number of sites will help you generate your policy for free, but few are making a move to standardize the language to ease the creators’ job, and save the consumers time.
We encourage you to branch these policies into more specific or improved versions. The legal frameworks around the topic of privacy are changing fast, so we need your help in order to keep this model up to date with best practices. We look forward to improving these privacy policies with the collective knowledge and constructive criticism of the tech community.
