Abstract: Health and fitness applications for mobile devices are becoming more and more popular. Due to novel wearable metering devices, the so-called Smartbands, these applications are able to capture both health data (e.g., the heart rate) as well as personal information (e.g., location data) and create a quantified self for their users. However, many of these applications violate the user's privacy and misuse the collected data. It becomes apparent that this threat is inherent in the privacy systems implemented in mobile platforms. Therefore, we apply the Privacy Policy Model (PPM) a fine-grained and modular expandable permission model to deals with this problem. We implement our adapted model in a prototype based on the Privacy Management Platform (PMP). Subsequently, we evaluate our model with the help the prototype and demonstrate its applicability for any application using Smartbands for its data acquisition.
