Required Data Types


When using Adapty, you must disclose that your app collects ‘Purchases’ information.

1. Purchase History

You should select at least the following options for 'Purchase History':

  • Selecting ‘Analytics’ ensures compliance for Adapty's dashboard features including Profiles/CRM and Charts.
  • Selecting ‘App Functionality’ ensures compliance for Adapty's receipt validation in order to prevent fraud.


If you are using Adapty for any of the other options listed, such as collecting data for Third-Party Advertising, you will need to select those options as well.

After selecting the options for Purchase History, click ‘Next’.

2. Purchase History Linked to Identity

Apple will then ask if you are linking purchase history to a user’s identity. If you don't set customerUserId, and don't have a way to identify individual users, you can select ‘No’.

If you are using customerUserId that can be tied to a user’s email address or phone number, you should select ‘Yes’.

3. Purchase History User Tracking

Finally, to indicate if purchase history data will be used for tracking purposes, you will need to read Apple’s examples and determine if your app meets their definitions of tracking.

Adapty, as a third-party, doesn't use purchase history to track users across different apps for advertising.


If you are identifying users with customerUserId, you'll need to select 'User ID'.

Adapty collects IDFA, so you'll need to select 'Device ID'.

After making your selections, you'll need to indicate how the data is used similar to the Purchases section.
