Aussie Gains Data Access Via Google Play Store
Google Play store provided application developers with users' personal details including names and email addresses. An Australian app developer has claimed that he has access to the personal information of users who download his Android app through the Google Play store. App buyers were not informed that their personal information was being shared with third party app developers. This potentially violates Google's 2011 privacy settlement as well as its existing policies for its app store and payment service.
