Hello everyone,

As for the new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), does anyone know what we should do as Apps developers that use Google Admob?

Some clue ideas, see a lot of misinformation and many people ask us, and we want to know some close or accurate position to answer,

Thank you very much

No need to change anything. Maybe while publishing, u can add some things to ur privacy policy which is related to GDPR by copying info from other websites which have updated their privacy policy.

I have published apps in last few days and they are being accepted by Google play without any issues,

The question should be "How does Seattle Clouds (MobileSoft) deal with GDPR? What new information should us white label publishers be adding to our websites?

Yes, you do need to worry about GDPR even if you outside the EU.  It applies to anyone who provides products to anyone in the EU no matter where you live. You need to be concerned if you are using AdMob, too. Other ad networks may mean that you have to get this sorted, I imagine.

It's well worth getting up to speed on this asap.

For sure you will want to update your Privacy Policy (PP) on your website. I 'borrowed' a piece of SeattleCloud's PP and added it to my (white label) website's PP. Here is what I did:
-----------------------------

We use the SeattleClouds mobile app builder as part of this website. Known as "the mobile app builder." We collect certain information

 

Your privacy is important to us. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, store, use and disclose your personal information when you use (the “Website”), our mobile and desktop apps (the "Apps") and all related sites, players, widgets, tools, apps, data, software, APIs and other services provided by MobileSoft (collectively, the “Services”).

By using the Website, the Apps or any of the Services, and in particular by registering an account, you are consenting to the use of your personal information in the manner set out in this Privacy Policy. Please take some time to read this Privacy Policy and make sure you are comfortable with our use of your personal information. If you do not agree to any of the provisions of this Privacy Policy, you should not use the Website, the Apps or any of the Services. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact us at sc.support@mobilesoft.com.

Please note that this Privacy Policy only applies to the Website, the Apps and the Services (together, the “Platform”). When using the Platform, you may find links to other websites, apps and services, or tools that enable you to provide information to other websites, apps and services. MobileSoft is not responsible for the privacy practices of those other websites, apps or services, and we recommend that you review the privacy policies of each of those websites, apps or services before connecting your MobileSoft account or providing any personal information.

To moderator, if I am in error doing this please advise me right away. However it may just be a good idea to encourage all you white label publishers to do something similar.


I looked at my AdMob acct. to see what changes I needed to make. It looks like AdMob is using a 'default' setting for advertiing. If you use something other than AdMob you will have to get their user consent policy (and/or app) and add that to your website.

Who knows if we need to add a privacy policy to our app(s)? If we do...SC should create and publish a tutorial on how to do it. Right?

Tim,

What do you mean by AdMob using a "default" setting? 

Kind regards,

John
