Some of you have submitted applications for review. One item I have noticed the developers can miss is this requirement:
4.1 Your app must comply with the following privacy-related requirements:
4.1.1 Your app must have a privacy statement if it collects personal information
The solution might be as easy as removing "Internet (Client)" from your application manifest capabilities section. If your application does not use any internet capability, you should remove this. If it does need to use the Internet, then leave this setting and read on!
Here is why I think this gets some of us...
By default, when you create an application the Manifest selects the Capability "Internet (Client)". If your application is not going out and using internet resources it still may have this capability checked. Make sure you remove it and you will not have to provide a privacy statement.
You need to provide this policy when you submit the application. Also you should include it in the Application Settings so that customers can easily find it!
Hope this helps!
