I wrote here that Google will dump apps from the Play store if they need a Privacy Policy and don't have one. We've been told BASIC! needs one, and we have until March 15 to provide one. I will do that. I'll add a menu item to the Editor that opens a page that displays a Privacy Policy. I'll have a link from the Play store to a notice page on Paul's server.

If you have apps on the Google Play store, you should have gotten a similar notification. What do you intend to do about it? We can share ideas here.

If somebody has already opened a topic to discuss this, I missed it. Please link this one to that one.

Hi Marc and welcome back!

Not all applications made with BASIC! will be asked to have a privacy policy by Google, only those using "sensitive" permissions will.
Basically only BASIC! apps accessing contacts, sms, device info etc. will need a privacy policy. Any other apps based on BASIC! (typically games) will not need one.

Out of the nine apps I published on the Play store (all of them based on RFO BASIC!) I received a mail only for the BASIC! Compiler from Google, because it uses READ_PHONE_STATE (BASIC! command DEVICE.INFO).

I came up with this privacy policy: http://mougino.free.fr/com.rfo.compiler_privacy_policy.txt for the Compiler.
If other users were asked by Google to write a privacy policy, you can take mine as inspiration, I won't mind.

Cheers,
Nicolas

Welcome back, Marc and Nicolas.
Unfortunately there were shady apps that asked for tons of permission without really needing them, or providing false information. So we'll have to pay the price for that.
