Skripilev encourages users to carefully read the user agreement in orde
Speaker's quote: Grigory Skripilev, head of practice at the Intercessia Law Office, sees risks for users in this practice of the corporation.
"Such applications are positioned as applications that take care of the health of the owner of a mobile device, but after processing information about the user's sleep state, companies can set up targeted advertising for various goods and services," the lawyer explains to Gazeta.Ru.
He emphasizes that official applications are unlikely to engage in open trade in data, but will continue to use them for their own purposes.
Skripilev encourages users to carefully read the user agreement in order to understand what permissions applications receive when tracking sleep and how the information will be used in the future.
