To ensure that the content of new privacy policies protect consumers, CALPIRG recommends that the Attorney General’s office works with app developers to adopt robust privacy polices based on the Fair Information Practice Principles - a set of generally accepted principles for safeguarding individuals’ personal information. These principles include:
• Be completely transparent about how you are using or transmitting user data.
• Don’t access more data than you need.
• Give consumers control over uses of data that they might not expect.
• Use reasonable and up-to-date security protocols to safeguard data.
The California Public Interest Research Group (CALPIRG) Education Fund is a result-oriented public interest group that protects consumers, encourages a fair sustainable economy, and fosters responsive democratic governance.
