SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Consumer Watchdog Friday praised California Attorney General Kamala Harris for defending consumers' privacy rights by filing a suit against Delta Airlines for offering a mobile "app" that violates the state's privacy law.
"Kamala Harris is bringing law and order to the Wild West of the mobile world," said John M. Simpson, Consumer Watchdog's Privacy Project director. "She is serious about privacy and her tough action will mean that California once again leads the nation in protecting consumers' rights."

"Privacy policies don't solve all concerns about protecting privacy," said Simpson. "They do at least inform users how their data is gathered and how it's used. That enables people to make an informed choice about whether to use the app."
