    Developer Program Policies

    ZAG-DPP

    Zebra Technologies Corporation (“Zebra”) requires all developers submitting software applications to the Zebra AppGallery (“ZAG”) to adhere to this policy.  Any violation of the ZAG-DPP will result in your software application being removed from the ZAG.  

    Zebra will not allow the following types of material to be included in the ZAG:

    Illegal Activities- You may not conduct, engage in or promote unlawful activities on the ZAG, such as the sale of property you do not own or the sale of prescription drugs without a prescription.

    Harassment & Violence - Software applications may not contain materials that threaten, harass or bully other users. Pictures or depictions of violence are not permitted.

    Personal and Confidential Information- Zebra does not allow unauthorized publishing or disclosure of individual's private and/or confidential information, such as credit card numbers, government identification numbers, driver's and other license numbers, non-public contacts, or any other information that is not publicly accessible.

    Deceptive Behavior- You may not represent yourself to be someone else, nor represent that your software application is authorized by or produced by another person or entity if that is not true. Software applications must not contain any false or misleading information. You may not divert users or provide links to any other site that mimics or passes itself off as another software application or service. Software applications must not appear confusingly similar to existing products or interfaces.

    Objectionable Content- Zebra does not allow content that is crude, offensive or defamatory or targets or advocates against groups of people based on their race, religion, ethnic origin, disability, gender, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity.

    Infringement- Software applications may not infringe the intellectual property rights of others, (including patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, and other proprietary rights), or encourage or induce infringement of intellectual property rights.   Software applications that use protected third party material require authorization which must be provided upon request.

    Gambling- Zebra does not allow content or services that facilitate online gambling, including but not limited to, online casinos, sports betting and lotteries, or games of skill that offer prizes of cash or other value.

    Sexually Explicit Material- Software applications that contain or promote pornography and/or child sexual abuse are prohibited; this includes sexually explicit or erotic content, icons, titles, or descriptions.

    Dangerous Software Applications- Zebra does not allow content or software applications that harm, interfere with the operation of, or access in an unauthorized manner any networks, servers, or other infrastructure.

    Viruses – You may not transmit or link to viruses, worms, defects, Trojan horses, malware, or any other items that may introduce security vulnerabilities to or harm user devices, software applications, or personal data.

    Spyware- Zebra does not allow software applications that collect information (such as the user's location or behavior) without the user's knowledge (spyware).

    Malware - Malicious scripts and password phishing scams are prohibited on the ZAG, as are software applications that cause users to unknowingly download or install software applications from sources outside of the ZAG.

    Network Usage- Software applications must not create unpredictable network usage that has an adverse impact on a user's service charges or a carrier network. Software applications also may not knowingly violate a carrier’s terms of service for allowed usage or any Zebra terms of service.

    System Interference- All changes to the user’s device, including replacing or reordering the default settings on the device outside of the software application must require user consent. Software applications must not encourage, incentivize, or mislead users into removing or disabling third-party software applications except as part of a security service provided by the software application.

    Content Download - All software applications that include the ability to download content from a third party source will require authorization from the third party site.

    Developer Conduct.  To keep the user experience positive, Developers should not:

    • post repetitive content.
    • use irrelevant, misleading, or excessive keywords in software applications descriptions, titles, or metadata.
    • attempt to change the placement of any software application in the ZAG, or manipulate any product ratings or reviews by unauthorized means such as fraudulent installs, paid or fake reviews or ratings, or by offering incentives to rate products.
    • submit a software application created by an automated tool or wizard service on behalf of other persons.
    • post a software application that will drive affiliate traffic to a third party website or provide a webview of a website not owned or administered by the developer (unless you have permission from the website owner/administrator to do so).
    • send SMS, email, or other messages on behalf of the user without providing the user with the ability to confirm content and intended recipient.

    Promotion-Software applications published on the ZAG may not directly or indirectly engage in or benefit from:

    • Promotion through deceptive ads on websites, software applications or other properties, including simulated system, service, or software application notifications or alerts.
    • Promotion or install tactics that cause redirection to the ZAG or the download of the software application without informed user action.
    • Unsolicited promotion via SMS services.

    It is your responsibility to ensure that no ad network or affiliate uses such methods to direct users to pages that make your software application available for download.

    Advertising Policy- Under no circumstances shall you submit any software application with any ads including whether it is implemented in or bundled with software applications.
