Sensitive Data & Integrity

A broad question:


Suppose for example I make a stock ticker app... which streams data from my own personal webserver. How can an application like that be approved on App World, if the integrity of the data depends on the uptime, etc. of my personal server.


This goes for any app -- if I rely on a personal server to communicate data with the Blackberry, for example, I have an SQL database crunching numbers and storing an exorbitant amount of data, which the front-end cannot handle on its own, but the front-end just displays it, how does the approval process ensure that:

1. the server doesn't go down and the app stop work

2. the data is valid (ex. I don't lie about the price of a stock, in my ticker example)

3. the data is not adult in nature (ex. i stream a pic of my company logo, get the app approved... i can replace it with a playboy bunny and it would load on the bberry).

Send an email to storefrontmanager@rim.com


I think there is an agreement between vendor and RIM that describes such situations.
