In this episode, Milla and Pilvi are pressing play on their inner gamers as today's guest, Jussi Honkasalo, Senior Legal Counsel and DPO at Rovio (the home of the legendary Angry Birds), gives us a let's play tour around the privacy of mobile games. (Ok, did we get any previous gaming sayings right?) 

We discuss, for example, how is it possible to build a global mobile game in the jungle of different kinds of privacy regulations globally -- especially when the target audience of mobile games is vast not just geographically but also age-wise? What are the most critical privacy aspects to take into account? What would be the best ways to comply with transparency requirements with such a broad audience -- could, for example, the amazing game designers be of help here? We also discuss what kind of privacy requirements gaming platforms, from where mobile games are downloaded, have and if these requirements have an impact on gaming companies.   

We also briefly discuss the new "EO" (Executive Order on Enhancing Safeguards for United States Signal Intelligence Activities), which tries to patch up the holes exposed by Schrems II.
