Let’s unpack it
I’m going to walk you through verifying these requirements. If one of the tests below fails, you know what to fix. Do so, and then reply to the email to let Google know that you have remediated the issue.
The first five requirements are straightforward to verify for yourself. If any of them failed, you have a clear path forward.
The first place to start is by reading Google’s User Data Policy to get an idea of the intent behind Google’s review. Essentially, it states that your application should be clear about what it’s going to do and users should not be surprised by anything your app does with regards to Google Contact data.
With that in mind, I’ll briefly describe the last requirements.
- What data are you requesting from your users?
- How are you using and storing this data?
- With whom do you share this data?
7. Don’t abuse Google data
- change your app to conform to your stated policies.
