Mario Monti resigns as prime minister of Italy

Category : Business

Uncertainty over former European commissioner’s plans for elections, which are expected in February

The Italian prime minister, Mario Monti, tendered his resignation to the president on Friday after 13 months in office, opening the way for a highly uncertain national election in February.

The former European commissioner, appointed to lead an unelected government to save Italy from financial crisis a year ago, has kept his own political plans a closely guarded secret but he has faced growing pressure to seek a second term.

President Giorgio Napolitano is expected to dissolve parliament in the next few days and has indicated that the most likely date for the election is 24 February.

In an unexpected move, Napolitano said he would hold consultations with political leaders from all the main parties to discuss the next steps. In the meantime, Monti will continue in a caretaker capacity.

European leaders including German chancellor Angela Merkel and European commission president José Manuel Barroso have called for Monti’s economic reform agenda to continue, but Italy’s two main parties have said he should stay out of the race.

Ordinary Italians are weary of repeated tax hikes and spending cuts and opinion polls offer little evidence that they are ready to give Monti a second term. A survey this week showed 61% saying he should not stand.

Monti, who handed in his resignation during a brief meeting at the presidential palace shortly after parliament approved his government’s 2013 budget, will hold a news conference on Sunday at which he is expected clarify his intentions. He has not said clearly whether he intends to run, but he has dropped heavy hints that he will continue to push a reform agenda that has the backing of Italy’s business community and its European partners.

Former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi’s return to the political arena has added to the already considerable uncertainty about the centre-right’s intentions and increased the likelihood of a messy and potentially bitter election campaign.

The billionaire media tycoon has fluctuated between attacking the government’s “Germano-centric” austerity policies and promising to stand aside if Monti agrees to lead the centre-right, but now appears to have settled on an anti-Monti line.

Most mobile apps for children failing on privacy, FTC finds

Category : Business

FTC investigating whether firms are in breach of existing laws and says little progress made on ensuring children are protected

Most mobile applications aimed at children collect information – including device IDs, location data and phone numbers – without their parents’ permission, according to a Federal Trade Commission report released Monday.

The FTC is also launching investigations to see whether some of these app companies are acting in violation of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (Coppa) or the Federal Trade Commission Act.

“While we think most companies have the best intentions when it comes protecting kids’ privacy, we haven’t seen any progress when it comes to making sure parents have the information they need to make informed choices about apps for their kids. In fact, our study shows that kids’ apps siphon an alarming amount of information from mobile devices without disclosing this fact to parents,” FTC chairman Jon Leibowitz said.

The most commonly shared information was the device ID that can contain personal information including names, phone numbers, friends lists, emails and location data. Of the 400 apps reviewed, 235 shared this information with third parties.

Nearly 60% of the apps send information from a device to developers, advertising networks, analytics companies or other third parties.

Of these third parties, a very small group receives the information, which the FCC says could allow these companies to create detailed profiles on children based on how they interact and use different apps.

Many of the apps also failed to disclose in-app features including advertising, links to social media and the ability to purchase virtual goods.

The FTC first surveyed children’s mobile apps last year and released its findings in February 2012. The FTC felt that mobile application companies had failed to address the commission’s concerns.

“All of the companies in the mobile app space, especially the gatekeepers of the app stores, need to do a better job,” said Leibowitz. ”We’ll do another survey in the future and we will expect to see improvement.”

Of the surveyed apps, the FTC found only 20% disclosed information on their privacy practices.

Kathryn Montgomery, a spokesperson for the Center for Digital Democracy, said in a statement that the FTC’s findings show “a widespread disregard for children’s privacy rules.”

“In the rapidly growing children’s mobile market, companies are seizing on new ways to target children, unleashing a growing arsenal of interactive techniques, including geo-location and use of personal contact data” Montgomery said. ”It is clear that there is an urgent need for the FTC to update its Coppa regulations and to engage in ongoing enforcement.”

This study was released as Center for Digital Democracy and other privacy rights groups are issuing support for a proposed update to Coppa, which requires online companies to obtain permission from parents before collecting information from children under 13.

If passed, the proposed update would make changes accounting for technological advancements made since the act was went into effect in 2000. It would limit the amount of time companies can keep data collected on children, and that third parties who collect the information adequately protect it.
