According to the authors of recently leaked secret British intelligence documents, the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Government Communications HQ (GCHQ) are trying to exploit so-called "leaky apps" to obtain information regarding your location, sexual orientation, and political alignment.
Well, the developer of Angry Birds, Rovio, has issued a statement today in which the Finnish firm vehemently states that it "does not provide end user data to government surveillance agencies".
"The alleged surveillance may be conducted through third-party advertising networks used by millions of commercial web sites and mobile applications across all industries," Rovio says.
"If advertising networks are indeed targeted, it would appear that no internet-enabled device that visits ad-enabled web sites or uses ad-enabled applications is immune to such surveillance."
Rovio notes, though, that it will re-assess its relationship with advertising services to prevent user privacy from ever being compromised.
"In order to protect our end users, we will, like all other companies using third-party advertising networks, have to re-evaluate working with these networks if they are being used for spying purposes."The Verge
