Opening up a potential new enforcement risk for all providers of apps, California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris announced on October 30 that she is sending notices to up to 100 providers of mobile apps claiming that their apps do not comply with California’s privacy laws. The California Attorney General asserts that the targeted companies’ apps are non-compliant because they fail to include, within the apps, privacy policies reasonably accessible by app users. According to the California Attorney General, failure by the recipients to correct the alleged deficiencies within 30 days could expose them to fines of up to $2500 for each copy of a non-compliant app a California consumer downloads. Recipients of the Attorney General’s notice reportedly include United Airlines, Delta Airlines, OpenTable, and other providers of popular apps.
