4INFO and TRUSTe Partner to Protect Mobile Consumer Privacy
SAN MATEO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
a diversified mobile advertising, technology, and media company,
announced a partnership with TRUSTe, the leading privacy management
solutions provider, to protect mobile consumer privacy when delivering
mobile ads. Through the partnership, TRUSTe will allow consumers to
opt-out of targeted advertising through their TRUSTed Mobile Ads
preference manager. This provides both transparency and control to the
mobile consumer audience.
"We are leading the charge in mobile privacy by engaging with TRUSTe to
provide the highest level of transparency and control," said Tim
Jenkins, CEO 4INFO. "As we continue to refine our advanced mobile
targeting capabilities, it was important for us to have a comprehensive
privacy solution. TRUSTe provides this and ensures that we are handling
users' private information at the highest standard, so they can engage
with brands in a safe and accommodating environment."
In a 2012 U.S. Online and Mobile Privacy Perceptions Report conducted by
Harris Interactive (News - Alert) on behalf of TRUSTe, among smartphone users, 42
percent identify privacy and security as top concerns, and an
overwhelming majority (85 percent), say they won't download mobile apps
that they don't trust. TRUSTe makes privacy easy for mobile app
developers by clearly disclosing what information the app will access.
TRUSTed Mobile Ads will be integrated with 4INFO's AdHaven platform to
ensure hat all privacy practices align with regulatory requirements.
"TRUSTe applauds 4INFO for taking a proactive approach toward mobile
privacy by standardizing on practices that have been proven to turn the
tide against rising consumer privacy concerns," said Chris Babel, CEO
for TRUSTe. "TRUSTed Mobile Ads builds trust and consumer engagement on
mobile apps, while reinforcing brand integrity, by giving people clear
choices regarding the usage of their personal and private information."
