Important Information About Platform Permissions
Most mobile platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without your consent. And these platforms have different permission systems for obtaining your consent. The iOS platform will alert you the first time the BOMBAX app wants permission to access certain types of data and will let you consent (or not consent) to that request. Android devices will notify you of the permissions that the BOMBAX app seeks before you first use the app, and your use of the app constitutes your consent.
