As we previously described, the White House recently released a landmark privacy report, entitled Consumer Data Privacy in a Networked World, which outlines key privacy principles in its “Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights” and calls on the National Telecommunications & Information Administration (NTIA) to work with industry and others to develop voluntary but enforceable codes of conduct that specify how the principles in the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights will apply in specific business contexts.

Seeking to build on the White House’s landmark report, the NTIA announced a multi-stakeholder meeting to be held on July 12 to begin developing a code of conduct that applies the “Transparency” principle in the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights to mobile apps.  The meeting will take place in the Washington D.C. metro area, but the exact venue has not yet been announced.
