Apple: From October 3, all App Store apps must have a privacy policy




Apple has sent a message to app developers in which it informs them that all software in the App Store must be provided with a privacy policy from October 3rd. This applies to all new apps and updates.

In the announcement , Apple writes that a privacy policy is required if an app is offered for distribution via the App Store or through TestFlight, allowing developers to test their software by beta testers. A supplied privacy policy, in the form of a link or a text, can only be changed in combination with a new version of the app.

According to 9to5Mac , the requirement of a privacy policy already existed for apps that use subscriptions. In a separate document , Apple explains what should be included in a privacy policy. For example what data is collected, in which way that happens and for what purpose.

In addition, developers must ensure that third parties who have access to the data offer the same protection. It must also be clear how long data is saved and what the rights of users are. These are more or less the requirements set by the AVG to processors of personal data in the context of their duty to provide information.
