SoftTrinity Requirements for a Mobile App Privacy Policy

As noted above, there are 3 sources of the Privacy Policy requirement: International laws, mobile app stores and third party app services.

International Laws

Laws around the world require that if your website/mobile app collects and uses personal information from users, you must provide users with access to a Privacy Policy.

Note that while most of these laws started with the goal of protecting internet and website users, they now apply to mobile apps because the two are so closely related. Often, a mobile app is just the mobile version of the standard website.

Also, because the laws were created with an aim towards protecting consumer privacy, they are interpreted to be broad in scope to offer maximum protection. This means they will apply to mobile apps as well as websites, and the laws have been updated to reflect this.
