California AG Wants to Ground Delta's App for Privacy Violations

Legal action is first under state's strict privacy law


The California Attorney General filed suit against Delta Airlines for violating the state's online privacy law.

According to the complaint filed Thursday in San Francisco Superior Court, Delta's app, called Fly Delta, failed to conspicuously post a privacy statement that lets users know what personally identifiable information Delta collects and what the company does with it.

If the court grants the AG's request, Delta could be forced to stop distributing its app and pay up to $2,500 for each violation of the California privacy law, the only state with a strict privacy law.
