GIBRALTAR REGULATORY AUTHORITY TAKES PART IN JOINT OPEN LETTER TO APP MARKETPLACES

Earlier this year the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority, as the Data Protection Commissioner, took part in the Global Privacy Enforcement Network (“GPEN”) 2014 Sweep, where privacy authorities from around the world participated in a coordinated effort to examine privacy issues related to mobile applications.

Following the results of the Sweep, in an initiative led by the Privacy Commissioners of Canada and Hong Kong, Gibraltar’s Data Protection Commissioner, is among 23 privacy authorities from around the world who have signed an open letter to the operators of seven app marketplaces urging them to make links to privacy policies mandatory for apps that collect personal information.

A copy of the letter can be found below.
