Spotify Wants To Go Through Your Phone

Spotify's CEO Daniel Ek released a statement today clarifying the company's new privacy policy and terms and conditions. Apparently the paragraph below was freaking people out:

"With your permission, we may collect information stored on your mobile device, such as contacts, photos, or media files. Local law may require that you seek the consent of your contacts to provide their personal information to Spotify, which may use that information for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy."
