This guide provides answers to the following questions, along with information on authorities, practice tips, comments and further reading:
Question 1: If privacy policies aren’t required by federal law, why does every website and app seem to have one?
Question 5: Are there special privacy rules that relate to information about children? Do they apply to me and do I need to have a separate policy or do anything different to comply?
Question 6: Are there any additional restrictions on how sensitive data collected from apps may be used (i.e., geolocation, health information, financial information)?
Question 7: Does it matter where the business is located or where the app users are located for privacy purposes? Can I launch my app internationally?
