FTE must include notice to user that Gelocation Location Services will send data to a 3rd party

"Use additional location services

Firefox OS uses data such as WiFi and mobile networks near you to help your device determine your approximate location more quickly and in places where GPS is not available. I recommend the box be checked.

[X] Enable additional location services.

Data is sent to Mozilla and other service providers and will be used in the aggregate to improve those location databases. Data may be stored on your device and data collection may occur even when no apps are running.

sorry missed this second patch - we want to default it to checked like we had it before.

Two questions/notes about the strings added in this bug.

geolocationInfo = Firefox OS uses data such as GPS, WiFi, and mobile networks near you to help determine your approximate location.

1) You should clearly use "Wi-Fi" instead of "WiFi", since that's the standard in all existing en-US strings.
2) Why hard-coding "Firefox OS" when all other strings in ftu.properties use "{{brandShortName}}"?

Let me know if you want me to open a new bug depending on this.
