    The application collects Personal Data, but does not include a Privacy Polic

    Good day

    I'm publishing an app that uses FB and Twitter logins for users to post comments and share parts of the app.

    I got this error from the QA Team
    SUMMARY: The application collects Personal Data, but does not include a Privacy Policy in the application.

    The application is called Sport360, and has an icon called About360
    Under the About360 icon there is 3 tabs
    About, credits and privacy policy link, when clicking on it, it would take you a website where the privacy is located.
    I've done this before for other application, so I guess it was a miss by the QA team, right?

    The application's item id is : 575766

    Please let me know what you think.

    I think you should contact the QA team and tell them what you told us here, that you already have and include a privacy policy, and if it is not enough, ask them to clarify what they really want.

    I had similar problem with one of my applications. I solved adding a popup message on application startup (with accept button). Popup was informing to user what application does with data.
    I found some website that help me to write the text ...

    Could indeed be that if the application does not show the privacy policy, but instead it assumes that users would know how to navigate to it, then I would assume that it would fail.

    so you should make it clear that users will be always shown(when they first run the app) the privacy policy. Also do remember to implement the Opting out features, so users could at any time they want, go and disable the data collection.
