Cali AG sues Delta for lack of privacy policy in mobile app

The California Attorney General, Kamela Harris, has filed suit against Delta Airlines, Inc. for failure to comply with the California Online Privacy Protection Act: “California law is clear that mobile apps collecting personal information need privacy policies and that the users of those apps deserve to know what is being done with their personal information.”

Delta was among the 100 companies that the AG  sent letters to in October warning them that they must inform consumers about their policies for handling personal data collected by mobile apps and online services. This is the AG’s first legal action under the law since her promise to crack down on companies that fail to include a privacy policy within their mobile app. If Harris succeeds, then Delta will be forced to post a policy within its app in addition to paying $2500 for each violation demonstrated at trial.
