A primer on privacy as "contextual integrity"
A primer on privacy as "contextual integrity" and why privacy notices on mobile platforms (both Android and iOS) are insufficient for attaining informed consent.

If your doctor asked for permission to collect your medical history, you would probably say yes.
However, if that doctor asked to collect your medical history to give to marketers for advertising purposes, you would probably decline.

The difference is, in the first case, you're making assumptions about how the data will be used based on who is making the request.
Knowing just the type of data requested and the requester are insufficient to make an informed decision: people also consider the purpose and other constraints (e.g., will data be resold, stored securely, etc.), which are equally important factors.
