Google Play Data Safety Guidance

Verve Group's data processing practices for Google Play Console's Data Safety form

[block:api-header] { "title": "Prepare for Google Play’s Data Disclosure Requirements" } [/block] In May 2021, Google Play [announced the new Data safety section](https://android-developers.googleblog.com/2021/05/new-safety-section-in-google-play-will.html), which is a developer-provided disclosure for an app’s data collection, sharing, and security practices. This page can help you complete the requirements for this data disclosure in regards to your usage of Verve Group’s HyBid Android SDK. On this page, you can find information on whether and how our SDKs handle end-user data. We aim to be as transparent as possible in supporting you; however, as the app developer, you are solely responsible for deciding how to respond to Google Play’s Data safety section form regarding your app’s end-user data collection, sharing, and security practices. [block:api-header] { "title": "How To Use the Information on This Page" } [/block] This page lists the end-user data collected by only the ***latest version*** of Verve Group’s HyBid Android SDK. We provide information about data ***collected automatically*** versus data ***collected depending on your usage***. Automatic collection means that the SDK collects specific data without you invoking any specific method or class in your app. However, in many cases, the data collected by the SDK depends on your app’s specific usage of the product, meaning your app’s configuration and how you invoke the SDK. To complete your data disclosure, you can use Android’s [guide about data types](https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/data/collect-share) to help you determine which *data type* best describes the collected data. In your data disclosure, make sure to also account for how your specific app shares and uses the collected data.
