A scenario provided by :dougt:
When the user goes through the FTU and say "No, i don't want to agree to using geolocation", but he/she still can turn on geolocation w/o any notice.

We now allows the user to see a notice on use, but the lawyers wanted both, which is probably a good thing.

Hi, After I try this action in Android 4.2 and iOS7. There are also no any notice to user. 
Because when user press the toggle of Geolocation(GPS), we supposed user knows that is turn on GPS. 
I also think, If we need inform user that should comes from Apps. Like map or weather apps, That apps should show the notice to user that will share user's location to that App. Ask user yes or no. 
What do you think?

It's hard to parse everything that is said here.


The requirement is this:

Whenever the user enables Geolocation on the device, they must agree to the terms and conditions of crowdsourcing.

The follow that I was worried about is as follows:

1) user goes through FTU
2) user does not enable Geolocation
3) ...next day...
4) user goes into the Settings application and enables Geolocation.


The user MUST see the same notice in step 4 that they saw if they had enabled Geolocation during the FTU.

I think this works now, but someone should verify.
