Privacy Policy

Your app must not engage in malicious or deceptive behavior and must not violate the privacy of your users:

  • Your app cannot engage in network or device abuse, including throttling a user's network.
  • Your app cannot contain references to or include malicious hacking, such as phishing or Trojans or contain cracking content in the app or app metadata. This includes but is not limited to rooting a device or circumventing Amazing Local or any developer's digital rights management (DRM) software, and illegal torrents, emulators, and downloaders.
  • Your app cannot claim to contain anti-virus features unless your app actually includes this functionality.
  • Apps representing financialPrivacy and Security Policy institutions must have adequate user security in place. Banking apps must be submitted by or on behalf of the financial institution represented by the app.
  • Apps cannot mis-use customer personally identifiable information or sensitive personal information.
  • Apps that include or describe malicious tracking or stalking, or that secretly collect data or device usage information, such as surveillance or spyware apps, are prohibited. Apps with tracking and reporting features that are clearly marketed and exclusively designed for family monitoring or enterprise management are permitted, as long as they do not mislead users about such functionality, show users a persistent notification about such functionality and a unique icon that clearly identifies the app, and they do not provide the ability to activate or access functionality that violate these policies, such as linking to a non-compliant APK outside Appstore.

       An app that accesses a user's contacts, but doesn't need contacts to provide the app's services.

       An app that accesses a user's personal information to support a feature that is not yet available.
