Apps will soon come with warnings alerting companies what the app makers plan on doing with users' personal info. I have a feeling there are going to be a lot of loopholes in this system, however.

maybe this will discourage app developers from selling personal info. or maybe most app users don't even care if their data's sold to marketers at this point, and feel privacy's a thing of the past.

Sounds like a good idea
The idea is to encourage technology companies that have access to users' personal identifiable information such as geolocation and contact lists to better inform consumers how that information is used so consumers can make better decisions about using the app in the first place.
