Startup and video game law, from a Canadian and U.S. perspective
During development, consider the following:
2. What are you collecting? Create a list of all information that your software collects and make sure this list is shared between development teams and is kept up to date. If possible, separate this information into “Personal”, such as first and last names, geolocation data or email addresses, and “Anonymous”, such as number of clicks or how long a user stayed on a page.
3. What are you using this information for? Opposite each piece of information you collect, note what you are using this information for. For example, in a restaurant app, beside geolocation data: “determines user location to list nearby businesses that are similar to type requested by user”. If you can’t find a use for information, consider not collecting that information.
4. Are you disclosing this information outside the company? Opposite each piece of information you collect, note if you disclose that information to 3rd parties outside of your company and how those companies are using this information.
