Apple Privacy Agreement

State regulation, as Cook called for in his Brussels speech, is a way to improve data protection, and probably necessary. But relying on politics as a precondition for action is to circumvent the moral dilemma. If Apple really took care of personal data, the company could take any number of steps to keep violators away from its platforms and customers. Until that happens, it`s time to stop abandoning Apple as a more moral company than Google or Facebook. Indeed, it could be worse if we do not act while we decide on the urgency. Sometimes Apple may provide certain personal data to third parties to provide or improve our products and services, including providing products at your request or supporting the Apple market to consumers. If we do, we require these third parties to do it in accordance with applicable legislation. Apple does not sell personal data and personal data is never passed on to third parties for marketing purposes. For example, if you buy and activate your iPhone, you allow Apple and your mobile operator to exchange the information you specify during the activation process to run the service, including information about your device.

If you are approved for the service, your account will be subject to Apple and your mobile operator`s privacy policy. You can check this information before you activate these functions, in the settings of these functions and/or online apple.com/legal/privacy.

Apple has not taken a position on creating Facebook for a paid “research program” to extract user data. It imposed the terms of a licensing agreement; Fighting for users` privacy is only a side effect. Apple bends its contract right muscle, not its privacy muscle, and gain an advertising gain in the process. What matters is that Apple hasn`t banned Facebook from the App Store or iPhone platform: you can still download and use Messenger. Apple is committed to protecting the security and privacy of our users. The above developments and the work we are doing to support investigations maintain this fundamental obligation.

Allowing its users to request the removal of their personal data is also a legal requirement of several data protection laws, including the RGPD and the CCAC.
