Spotify Retracts It’s NSA Spying of Members

Yesterday Spotify posted a new privacy policy that up-roared its millions of subscribers and today the CEO of Spotify re-worded what the privacy policy states to clear up any confusions around it.

“Let me be crystal clear here: If you don’t want to share this kind of information, you don’t have to. We will ask for your express permission before accessing any of this data – and we will only use it for specific purposes that will allow you to customize your Spotify experience.” Daniel Ek said.

So while it seems that they aren’t changing the policies, they will be re-worded them to be accurately describe that a lot of the new concerns around the privacy policy, are opt-in only. The application will only allow access to what you provide it. For example, for photos – if you grant it access to access photos then it will utilize the information it collects around them to tailor the music to your liking’s.
