Privacy Policy Help

Updating my Android App had this message:

Warnings
Your APK is using permissions that require a privacy policy: (android.permission.CAMERA, android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO, android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE, android.permission.GET_ACCOUNTS, android.permission.READ_CONTACTS).

I've never had this before and not sure how to write a privacy policy - is there a generic one out there suitable for Android Apps?

Thanks for that

I found a link and it's the same as yours as it happens - fairly simple but my app has been accepted.

I was getting a bit concerned as some of the sites that charge for the service seemed so complicated
