We have a big announcement ready today: We are launching a plug-and-play solution for mobile app developers to generate their privacy policies. What we love about it, it’s screen-size and app store independent.
Our solution for mobile apps has been a long time coming. The need for privacy policies for mobile applications has been ever growing since we launched over a year ago in March 2012. You may have heard about the quite devastating mobile privacy issues experienced by startups like Path, but also about the lawsuit that Delta Airlines found themselves in.
The fact is: privacy policies need to be built into mobile apps if you collect very basic personal information. The change was brought about by California Attorney General, Kamala Harris, who started to apply the California Online Privacy Protection Act to the mobile ecosystem. In the wake of their crackdown on mobile apps, the office of the Attorney General also released a helpful guide on the handling of mobile privacy called Privacy on the Go: Recommendations for the Mobile Ecosystem.
All of that can be had much easier and more convenient:
Basically, we are giving you the same quality and design you’ve come to expect from us, but now iubenda is mobile ready. Here are some of the highlights for our mobile version:
- Truly plug-and-play. No need to adjust to screen sizes, no need to adjust to other OSes. Generate, embed, done
- Our privacy policies help you become compliant across app stores in no time
- Flexible embedding options for your apps
- Hosted in the cloud. Change it remotely anytime
Keeping this service ever up to date means that we’ve arrived at over 120+ ready made clauses, now with many mobile specific ones.
Next: support for more languages
We have a few things in the immediate pipeline, that a lot of users have been waiting for: we are starting to roll out our support for more languages. Within the next few weeks we are opening up German, French, Spanish and Portuguese. We hope to serve your needs even better with this step. You can either use various languages at the same time, or completely localize to your language if you are geared towards non-English speakers.
Thank you for reading, we hope you enjoy being with iubenda. As always, please feel free to get in touch about any questions, feedback or just to say hi.
