German court tells Apple to change customer data rules

A German court has told Apple to change customer data rules, according to a consumer group that has noted on its website that eight of 15 provisions in Apple’s data-use terms were struck down. Apple cannot ask for “global consent” to use customer data or use the location information of customers. The ruling only applies in Germany — however, a U.S. judge ruled in March that Apple must submit “a detailed account of how it collects and evaluates” documents, and the company may face court-ordered penalties over its practices. The U.S. lawsuit alleges Apple collected data from millions of devices without permission. [via Bloomberg]
