In this online help, we list all data types that may be collected and/ or shared in your Android app, and specify their use.
The information that we will provide here is how GoodBarber manages the data by default.

GoodBarber has no way to verify how you use any additional data you may collect from your users (for example, via a form, the user's profile information, a plugin, an external website URL, or any other means). 
You are responsible for sending Google accurate information about the use you make of your users' data.
