Does PlayFab SDK use CoreLocation Framework on iOS?

Hi,

Recently when submitting our game for review to App Store we received a warning from Apple that the app uses iOS location services and that we should provide a "Purpose String” explaining to user what purpose the app needs these services for.

Our app is a game and does not use any location services directly so we started checking all SDK’s we use. We checked what data PlayFab keeps for each user and found CountryCode, City, Latitude and Longitude. Does PlayFab SDK obtain this data calling location services on a device or it is derived from the user’s IP on a server?

Thanks!

We derive it from the IP used to communicate to our servers. We do not user the device's location services.
