Starting December 8, 2020, Apple requires you to provide information about your app’s privacy practices, including the practices of third-party partners whose code is integrated into your app.
This information is required in App Store Connect to submit new apps and app updates to the App Store.
You can access this form in App Store Connect > Your app > General > App Privacy menu.
Here is what you should declare for your GoodBarber app.
First of all, to the question "Do you or your third-party partners collect data from this app?", answer YES.
Declare the data that is collected in your app.
WARNING: The data collected may differ from one app to another, as some data depend on the content of the app and the extensions activated.
When the button App For Kids is on, the location data is deactivated. Therefore, you shouldn't declare it.

You can verify whether the Authentication extension is enabled from the Extensions Store > Management menu .
