Privacy Labels Policy
Amazon Appstore is introducing privacy labels to provide customers with a standard way to view information about how apps handle user data, providing more transparency to customers about what data is collected and how it is used. These labels will help customers make decisions when choosing to download or engage with apps on the Appstore.
The following sections describe the information you must disclose as part of your app’s privacy labels. The information is required for existing apps as well as new apps. For guidance, refer to the Technical Documentation on how to complete and submit the questionnaire with the required information. You are responsible for ensuring the information you provide is accurate and up to date. In addition, you should also comply with the Privacy and Security Policy.
User Data – Data Collection and Third-Party Data Transfer
You must disclose if your app (or any third-party plug-in or service provider your app uses) collects the following data associated with an individual user of your app (“user data”). Anonymous data that is not associated with an individual user does not need to be disclosed. You must also disclose if you transfer any of the following user data collected from your app to a third party. Third-party data transfer does not include transferring user data (i) to a service provider processing the data on the developer’s behalf, (ii) for legal purposes, such as responding to regulatory requests, or (iii) based on a specific user-initiated action, where the user reasonably expects the data to be shared, or user request, such as when a user consents to the transfer based on prominent in-app disclosures.
