SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background: On February 23, 2012, the White House released Consumer Data Privacy in a Networked World: A Framework for Protecting Privacy and Promoting Innovation in the Global Digital Economy (the “Privacy Blueprint”).[1] The Privacy Blueprint directs NTIA to convene multistakeholder processes to develop legally enforceable codes of conduct that specify how the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights applies in specific business contexts.[2] On June 15, 2012, NTIA announced that the goal of the first multistakeholder process is to develop a code of conduct to provide transparency in how companies providing applications and interactive services for mobile devices handle personal data.[3] On July 12, 2012, NTIA convened the first meeting of the first privacy multistakeholder process, followed by additional meetings through June 2013.

Matters to Be Considered: The July 9, 2013 meeting is part of a series of NTIA-convened multistakeholder discussions concerning mobile application transparency.

The July 9, 2013 meeting will build on stakeholders' previous work.
