Open source mobile privacy policy

Hi all,

Just wanted to let developers that don't have a privacy policy yet know that my other startup Docracy just released an open-source privacy policy for mobile apps. It's originally provided by experts and is a good starting point for many common app types. Branch the document as you would on GitHub to customize, improve, or both. Then simply link to your policy when you submit your apps. Select the best starting point from three open source options: (for generic http://www.docracy.com/6016/mobile-privacy-policy, ad-supported http://www.docracy.com/6516/mobile-privacy-policy-ad-sponsored-apps- and location-based http://www.docracy.com/6513/mobile-privacy-policy-geolocated-apps- apps. For example, here's our general policy: http://www.docracy.com/7025/larva-labs-mobile-privacy-policy and here's what it looks like when rendered for app store users: http://www.docracy.com/m/7025/larva-labs-mobile-privacy-policy

Congress seems close to mandating privacy policies for all apps and some states are already there (California) so it's worth figuring out. Happy to answer any questions or discuss more.
