The Department of Justice said Tuesday that up to 100 noncompliant companies – with apps on such platforms as the Apple App Store and Google Play – will receive letters. The department is still compiling the list, but confirms that Delta and United Airlines, along with dining reservations site OpenTable, are among the companies that will receive letters. Companies then have 30 days to comply before legal action is taken.
Request for comment from Delta, United and Open Table were not immediately returned.
The spokesman also confirms that the Justice Department office has no reason to believe these companies have done anything illegal with the data they collect.
