"Every time you open an app like Grindr, advertisement networks get your GPS location, device identifiers and even the fact that you use a gay dating app.

"This is an insane violation of users' EU privacy rights."

The companies under investigation are:

Grindr
Twitter's MoPub
ATT's AppNexus
OpenX
AdColony
Smaato
