Apple releases Commitment to Customer Privacy statement

Apple has released a statement on its website, titled Apple’s Commitment to Customer Privacy. The open letter reiterates and expands upon the company’s prior denials regarding PRISM, a U.S. government program which mines servers for data. In the statement, Apple details requests it has received for customer data from law enforcement officials, noting that it has repeatedly acted to protect as much data as possible while complying with lawful requests for information. Apple also notes that many of the requests were attempts to aid consumers impacted by lost devices or people. The company also says, “Apple has always placed a priority on protecting our customers’ personal data, and we don’t collect or maintain a mountain of personal details about our customers in the first place.”
