Four Kitchens was very happy to participate in the Application Developers Alliance Privacy Series in Austin on Monday night.

There were some really cool insights we learned, which you can find below. But most importantly, we’re very happy to see an organization educating developers on good practices regarding privacy policies.

The main idea behind this Privacy Series is to listen and educate developers, so that we can use that information to take it to policy makers.

Why is it important?
If left to their own accord, policy makers could make the wrong choice. Take this into consideration: if an application happens to have a misleading privacy policy, or if the application is deemed to violate user privacy, is it a civil or criminal offense?

We want to make sure we keep things civil, not criminal. And organizations like the Application Developers Alliance is making huge strides in making sure the law is fair for developers.
