It has been reported that a US based class action lawyer has filed a complaint against CNN. The complaint reportedly accuses CNN of violation of the US Video Privacy Protection Act and appears to imply that Bango sells information to advertisers.

Bango has not yet been approached about this matter. From reading the reports, we believe that the plaintiff may be mistaken about Bango’s activity. Bango takes great care to secure all information for its customers. Bango provides payment services and also analytics services for its customers who are mobile network operators, major app stores and large content providers.  Bango does not sell or supply personal information to advertisers.

Bango believes that it is on solid ground and operates “best practice” regarding privacy and security.   We will update the market if there are any significant developments in this case relating to Bango.

We do not comment on legal matters between our customers and third parties.
