Hi,

 

Is it too late to ask for some privacy considerations to be added to this document?

 

My initial thought was that the authors would point me to 8805, but a quick look there doesn’t show any mention of privacy.

 

My concern here is that the end-user’s geographic locale is being exposed to the service provider without the agreement of the end-user, and without the end-user even knowing that it is happening.

 

I know that this information has great value for a number of aspects of service provision (not least geographic licensing), and I am not opposed to its availability. I do object, however, to the concept that a user’s locale is generally available. A user should have the option of not revealing their locale (in the knowledge that this may exclude them from accessing some services).

 

Now, I doubt that this document is the right place to fix these privacy concerns. But it might be a good place to add a short paragraph on the privacy issues raised by using geo feeds.

 

Best,

Adrian
