Appfail Report – Threats to Consumers in Mobile Apps

I have the PDF but haven’t read it yet. I’m glad to see reports like this:

The Norwegian Consumer Council analysed the terms of 20 mobile apps. The purpose is to uncover potential threats to consumer protection hidden in the end-user terms and privacy policies of apps.

This report presents a summary of the main findings and will be published as a part of a campaign on consumer protection in mobile apps.

We have found what we deem to be breaches of European consumer and privacy law and hope that this report can make consumers more aware of their rights, at the same time, raise the bar for app developers, engage enforcement agencies and contribute to making apps’ business models more transparent and consumer friendly.
