The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) announced a voluntary Code of Conduct for mobile application ("app") short notices, (Code of Conduct) developed through the Multi-Stakeholder Process on Application Transparency convened by the U.S. Department of Commerce in June 2013. The purpose of the short form notices is to provide consumers enhanced transparency about the data collection and sharing practices of apps that consumers use. See http://www.ntia.doc.gov/files/ntia/publications/july_25_code_draft.pdf.
The Code of Conduct provides that app developers and publishers that voluntarily elect to enhance transparency by adopting a short form notice should describe in the notice
a) "the collection of types of data collected" (see the list of data categories below), and "whether or not consumers know that it is being collected";The Code of Conduct requires that "short form notices" convey the required information to app users in "a consistent manner that is easy for consumers to read and understand."
c) "the sharing of user-specific data, if any, with third parties" (see the list of third-parties below); and
d) "the identity of the entity providing the app."
