    If an apps does not have the user's authorization or acknowledge to access his data, for example, an apps which is not authorized, changes the user's system setting and collects the user's accurate or approximated location, is it already considered to be illegal?

    Once Google finds out an illegal apps, would they ban them permanently or even charge them? Or just probably only take them down from the apps shelf?

    Any site link to report suspicious apps for investigation?

    At the bottom of every app's entry in the Play store is a link "Flag as inappropriate". You can use that to report it to Google.
