FTC To Host Consumer Privacy Seminars


On December 2, the FTC announced a series of seminars to be held in 2014 dedicated to the privacy implications of: (i) mobile device tracking—tracking consumers in retail and other businesses using signals from their mobile devices; (ii) alternative scoring products—using predictive scoring to determine consumers’ access to products and offers; and (iii) consumer-generated and controlled health data—information provided by consumers to non-HIPAA covered websites, health applications, and devices. The first two topics will be examined in forums held in Washington, DC on February 19, 2014 and March 19, 2014, respectively. Details for the third event have not been finalized.

Topics:  FTC, Mobile Apps, Privacy Policy, Web Tracking
