Location data yes, but don't share it

I actually have no problem with apps knowing where they are, for some minor benefits (Google maps showing your position, weather widget showing the weather of where you actually are, and so on).

What I'd like to be able to forbid, it that those apps share that location data with people who have no real business having it. Obviously that won't ever happen, unlike Vegas, what happens in the phone never stays in the phone.
