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.

You Can Help
We have a chance to cut billions in junk food subsidies this year. Your support will help us do the research, advocacy and grassroots organizing to convince our elected officials to act.
Each year, our tax dollars pay for enough junk food additives to buy 8.5 two-liter bottles of soda for each person under 18. Help stop the subsidies for junk food.
