App Privacy Policy Violations

Google is catching up with Apple in that they are starting to reject apps that collect personal information without a matching privacy policy. Developers of existing apps are also receiving emails about Google policy violations.

I have always found app T&Cs to be one of the most contentious parts of an app and one of the things that change most often prior to publishing. Someone tends to draft something and it subsequently gets changed in many subtle ways as it does the rounds in the company.

So how do you get your first draft? What if you are a ‘one man band’ and need something simple and suitable? Ali Muzaffar has a great blog post on the topic. There’s also a free policy generator by Nishant Srivastava based on Ali’s template.
