Decoding Privacy/Security of Social Media Applications

If we run a mobile app that collects personal information from us then that app needs a privacy policy to comply with legislation around the world. Even if that app doesn't directly collect personal data, it may still need a privacy policy if it utilizes a third-party tool like Google Analytics to collect data on its behalf. Personal data can take many forms which can include the user's name, email address, telephone number, or physical address. There can also be less obvious types of data like IP addresses, log data, and information collected through cookies.
