Ad Age reports on the changes Apple has made to its App Store. The tech company will no longer allow app developers to create databases from the information they gather from iPhone users, such as the phone numbers and email addresses belonging to other people within a contact list. Developers will no longer be able to sell the information to third parties and will be required to use the data for the purpose it was collected or else they will need to obtain consent again. Any developer found violating the new rules will be banned from the App Store. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
