Question Free Solitaire - Privacy Issues?

Please Login to Remove!

Once again, it 'appears' that another vendor has released an app to obtain user info in the background to sell and market your info. I was looking for a simple game to add to the phone and since this got decent reviews, I thought I'd try it but I always check the logs afterwards to see if anything is being sent out in exchange for the free app. Seems like they're utilizing Data Flurry.

Here's the app link:
Free Free Solitaire - Download Free Solitaire - Free Games from BlackBerry App World

Here's the event log:

Daphne- Do you remember Card Star? Same issue w/o the grab all emails command.

Anyway, I deleted it but thought it was interesting to point out.
