Raised by: Andrei Popescu
On product: GeoAPI V1

In March 2009, Martin Thomson proposed that the Geolocation API methods should be extended to allow a Web site to provide Geolocation privacy-related information (e.g. text that explains how the website intends to use the user's location, a URL to a privacy policy, etc). This information would be rendered by the UA's chrome (e.g. in the geolocation permission dialog) and is intended to help the user decide whether or not to disclose her location to the website.  

This proposal was originally discussed in the following thread:

In June 2009, a similar proposal was brought up by Rigo Wenning:
