Complying with our Precise Location Data Policy

Recent updates to the Google Publisher Policies have introduced new notice and consent requirements for publishers who pass users’ precise location data to Google, for ads-related purposes.

If this policy applies to you, the snippet below shows one way you could inform your users of this data sharing:

Swift

func presentConsentOverlayFromViewController(_ rootViewController: UIViewController) {
  if (rootViewController == nil) {
    return;
  }

  DispatchQueue.main.async {
    let alert = UIAlertController(title: "Location data",
        message: """
            We may use your location, and share it with third parties,
            for the purposes of personalized advertising, analytics,
            and attribution.
            To learn more, visit our privacy policy at https://myapp.com/privacy.
        """,
        preferredStyle: .alert)
    let alertAction = UIAlertAction(title: "OK",
        style: .default,
        handler: { _ in
          // TODO: replace the below log statement with code that specifies how
          // you want to handle the user's acknowledgement.
          print("Got consent.")
        }
    )
    alert.addAction(alertAction)
    rootViewController.present(alert, animated: true, completion: nil)
  }
}

// To use the above function assuming you are in a view controller:
presentConsentOverlayFromViewController(self)

Objective-C

- (void)presentConsentOverlayFromViewController:(UIViewController *)rootViewController {
  if (rootViewController == nil) {
    return;
  }

  dispatch_async(dispatch_get_main_queue(), ^{
      UIAlertController *alert = [UIAlertController
          alertControllerWithTitle:@"Location data"
          message: @"We may use your location, and share it with third parties,"
              @"for the purposes of personalized advertising, analytics, and attribution."
              @"To learn more, visit our privacy policy at https://myapp.com/privacy."
          preferredStyle:UIAlertControllerStyleAlert];
      UIAlertAction *ok = [UIAlertAction
          actionWithTitle:@"OK"
          style:UIAlertActionStyleDefault
          handler:^(UIAlertAction *action) {
            [alert dismissViewControllerAnimated:YES completion:^{
            // TODO: replace the below log statement with code that specifies
            // how you want to handle the user's acknowledgement.
            NSLog(@"Got consent.");
            }];
          }];

      [alert addAction:ok];
      [rootViewController presentViewController:alert animated:YES completion:nil];
  });
}

// To use the above function assuming you are in a view controller:
[self presentConsentOverlayFromViewController:self];
