2016-09-15 Do

A privacy policy is a legal document. App developers must include it in their apps, especially as it describes the way an app gathers information, as well as how it uses, manages and handles that information. For example, if an app needs a user’s email address, the privacy policy must state what it will be used for, whether it will be stored and whether the company will share the information with third parties. Giving the user such information on how their data will be used is a legal requirement to protect their privacy, so that they have a choice in how their data is handled.
