I successfully uploaded the first development version of my app on app store Connect. In order to use TestFlight I first need to submit Export Compliance Information. I have read several relative docs but this remains very unclear for me and I am still really unsure as to what I should declare.
My app uses:
1.cordova core plugins:
3.Links to (http) php pages in my website which redirect to google forms that are https.
The yes/no questions apple asks me to answer are:
Does your app use encryption? Select Yes even if your app only uses the standard encryption within Apple’s operating system. If I reply ‘yes’, then
Does your app qualify for any of the exemptions provided in Category 5, Part 2 of the U.S. Export Administration Regulations?
- Should I assume that at least one of the plugins is making https calls (with admobpro being the most probable i suppose)? Even if not, is the redirect to https enough to consider a use of encryption?
- If I state that my app uses encryption, then does it qualify for an exemption?
- If I state that it qualifies for an exemption then what do I fill-in in the Annual Self-Classification for the U.S. Bureau of Industry and Security (B.I.S)
https://www.bis.doc.gov/index.php/documents/new-encryption/1675-sample-annual-self-classification-report ? None of the entries in the link makes any sense to me for my case…
- I read somewhere that these questions may be bypassed by setting the ITSAppUsesNonExemptEncryption variable “false” in Info.plist. Is this preferable and how do I set that? (I looked for this in VoltBuilder Docs but didn’t find it)
