How do I add Objectionable Content terms to my app per Apple’s policy?

If your app allows app users to communicate with each other, Apple’s policy states that you must have conditions in your Terms of Service that explicitly state that Objectionable Content is not tolerated. Below is an example of the verbiage that you can use in your app.

1) Log into your App Manager and select your app.

2) Click Features from the left-hand-side of the screen (or the middle of the screen).

3) If not already enabled, click the Privacy Policy feature (your app may say “Terms” or similar verbiage). If you want, rename the app page from “Privacy Polity” to “Terms of Service” or “Terms”.

4) Within the policy, include verbiage similar to the following (but suitable for your service, policy, app, products, etc):
