Should "gemmer" means "store" instead of "hide". In AppStore, it is written "gem" if we want to store an app for future purchase. Are there two meanings for this word? Er der to betydninger til dette ord?

"Gemmer" does mean "hide" and never "store". The word in app store is probably translated from "save" which "at gemme" could also mean. To add to the confusion it can only be saving something like a document or a memory and never saving a person.

In English it should still be "to store". They don't say ex: "yeah, we hide or records in the cellar below town hall". It should be "store".

Does politiet really require 'deres' rather than sin or dets?

Does the 'deres' here imply the record are somebody else's?
