Publishing on the Google Play Store

I tried publishing my first app on the Google Play Store but the submission was refused.

Issue found: Invalid Data safety form

Issue details

We found an issue in the following area(s):

  • Version code 10: Policy Declaration - Data Safety Section: Location Data Type - Approximate Location
  • Version code 10: Policy Declaration - Data Safety Section: Location Data Type - Precise Location

When uploading a new build, I noticed the following authorizations (permissions) and features (Fonctionnalités)

My app does not use Location. My app does not use the Camera.
But those values are selected by default by the Xojo Android framework.

I believe my app was rejected because I did not explain in the data privacy statement how I am using location and maybe camera.

@Paul_Lefebvre how can I disable these authorizations and features from the build?

It seems some others have successfully released an Android app. What did they submit in the Data safety form?
