Device identifiers - Android SDK collects and share Android advertising (ad) ID only if applicable.
Diagnostic and Crash logs information - Android SDK collects the performance of the SDK for analytics: to diagnose and fix bugs or crashes. This data isn't shared.

Android ad ID collection is optional. The ad ID can be reset or deleted by users using ad ID controls in the Android settings menu. Installed apps data can be collected only if ad ID is applicable. 

Location data collection is optional and only available if the app has location permission. User can also turn off location sensors for each app in the settings of the device.
