While the usage of mobile apps has grown over the pandemic, the focus on privacy has shifted from cookies and websites to mobile apps. The plans to phase out third-party cookies are not a novelty in the industry – even Google has announced its plans to do so  – but creating an opt in system for third party data collection across the apps in all countries (App Tracking Transparency – ATT) (no matter the country regulations) is a novelty. It is important, as many app developers use a third party to fully develop their app – for example, they may use a vendor to process the in-app payments. Not many users know what data is being collected by the third party.

On May 18 and 19, 2021 KG Legal KIELTYKA GLADKOWSKI is participating in the Global Forum on Economic Recovery organized by the US Chamber of Commerce, bringing together government and business leaders to discuss combatting the pandemic and the opportunities and impediments to a dynamic global recovery.
The global pandemic created an unprecedented economic and health crisis for the United States and the world. While the rapid development and deployment of vaccines offers hope for a robust economic recovery in the United States, the pandemic highlighted the need for strong U.S. leadership on the international stage to reinvigorate growth, strengthen trade and build resilient supply chains to support a global recovery. Investing in U.S. competitiveness and joining hands with our allies and partners, will be critical to build a better and more inclusive future – creating healthier communities, supporting entrepreneurship, and expanding access to innovative technologies.
The event will be devoted to the presentation of different local tech markets and related legal issues – in particular in regard to international Technology M&A transactions. The topics will be presented by speakers who are the specialist in the local tech markets.
