Why does my Android app need a privacy policy?

In order to use certain blocks in our platform - like the POI block, or Music block - your app requires certain permissions. The app will ask app users to confirm these permissions when they use the app. Google now requires you to provide a privacy policy explaining what you will do with these permissions. You can find more detailed information about this on the Google Help Center, here.

It is not possible to build an AppMachine app without requiring at least some permissions. For example, an AppMachine app will always require push message permissions to enable push messages in the app, geolocation permissions for allowing geo-based push messages, data storage permissions to save images in the cache, and internet permissions to download updates, to name a few.

These permissions are not uncommon for most Android apps. Please note that AppMachine does not, under any circumstances, share information with a third-party unless we have obtained permission thereto or is required to do so by law.
