Google Play requires a privacy policy for your app to be compliant with their guidelines:

A/ You do not have a privacy policy

1. Follow instruction of this online help  to set your privacy policy on your app.

2. Update your app Settings
3. Copy your Privacy Policy URL from your PWA*
Your privacy policy must be available on an active URL (no PDFs) and must be non-editable.

You need to customize your privacy policy content:
- The app must be named in the privacy policy.
- Ensure your privacy policy page is clearly labeled as such in the title.

*if your PWA is not published, you'll be able to get a HTML URL of your policy in the menu Settings > Other Settings > My Files   once you've set it in your back office.

B/ You already have a privacy policy made outside your app

If you already have a Privacy Policy of your own, you can use its existing URL.
