Completing Apple's App Privacy Survey

Before your app can be submitted to Apple's App Store, you will need to complete their App Privacy survey to provide transparency into all the ways that user data is collected from your mobile app.  To understand what data Futuri collects, please follow the guidance below, but make sure to add or update any answers based on data collected by your station or through any third-party integrations in your app.  

NOTE:  If you or any third-party integrations you have enabled, such as Adswizz, collect data tied to a user's identity, please contact Futuri so that we may assist you with enabling the proper app permissions required by Apple.

1.  After logging into App Store Connect, navigate to the app for which you need to complete the survey by clicking on it from the list or using the search tool in the upper right.

2.  Choose App Privacy from the left-side menu and then click the Get Started button to begin the survey. 

3.  The first question will ask if you or your third-party partners collect data from the app.  You must select Yes and then click Next.

4.  On the next page, you will check the boxes for any data category collected and then click Save.  NOTE:  The categories below should be selected on behalf of Futuri and you should additionally choose any that apply to your station or app integrations.
