App Permissions - CollabDeen

Since the time we started CollabDeen, we’ve built our Services with a set of strong privacy principles in mind. Before using certain CollabDeen features, the user has to give CollabDeen App permission to access and interact with the key functions of the user device.

Location service is the only mandatory permission for using CollabDeen, rest are optional. We have listed out each of the permissions that the app asks for and why it asks for them. We have genuine reasons to ask for your device permissions which gives benefit back to you as a user
