- You would like to ensure your application is compliant with Australian Federal Privacy laws,

- You want to ensure your application is compliant with any third-party tools, such as Google Analytics.

Third Party access to Personal Information
This provision is an extension of the "usage" provision, however it is specifically tailored to third party service access to a users personal data. These third parties usually include the Store provider, such as iOS or Android services. Your Policy should explain how and when such personal information may be disclosed to these third parties.
Commonly Asked Questions
The GDPR is formally known as the European Union General Data Protection Regulation and contains new data protection requirements that will come into effect on the 25th May 2018. There are many provisions under the GDPR that overlap with current Australian Privacy Law and as such, need to be complied with. These common legal requirements include how information is handled and ensuring privacy by design.
What else will my App need to be published in the App Store?
There are a few things you will need to complete before launching your app. In regards to legal considerations, you will need to get an ABN for your business and create an App End User License Agreement. Apple’s End User License Agreement will automatically be applicable if you do not provide your own EULA, which can potentially be problematic as Apple’s EULA is governed by the Law of the State of California and not Australian Law.
Next, it is best to consider the best ways to market your app. This will include target keywords, app descriptions and creating a supporting web page. Thirdly, look at the distribution of your app. This includes ensuring that the app is adequately configured to launch, analyzing crash reports and testing the app across numerous devices.
