Google Play policy Voilation warning


(Amit Raj) #1

I have today received an email from google play stating “Reason for warning: Violation of Usage of Android Advertising ID policy and section 4.8 of the Developer Distribution Agreement” for google ads used in my app created with makeroid. They suggest “Action required: Add a privacy policy to your store listing and app” i want to know whether we are required to add policy for admob ads and why do i receive this mail for apps made with thunkable and makeroid only and not for apps made with appybuilder. Anyone know what to add in privacy policy and can we use the wordpress or blogspot subdomain as our policy url?

Well i am working to find some solution and came up with a good privacy policy doing discussion with some group members on thunkable. I will post the privacy policy here for others use once done if makeroid allows it.


(Nik) #4

yes you can use WordPress or blogger subdomain for your policy url and make sure add why you are showing ads in policy.

I received a similar almost same with different app name and i am working on it, it takes time to construct good privacy policy and also will show you how i implemented in my application because without option menu its a bit complicated. I generally hide the option menu and only use it on appybuilder as they allow to reset option. Okay let me complete and then i will share the policy and i hope you make the necessary changes then like app name and your name.
