Submission + - German Court Rejects Apple's Privacy Policy (

redletterdave writes: A German court rejected eight out of 15 provisions in Appleâ(TM)s general privacy policy and terms of data use on Tuesday, claiming that the practices of the Cupertino, Calif. company deviate too much from German laws. According to German law, recognized consumer groups can sue companies over illegal terms and conditions. Apple asks for âoeglobal consentâ to use customer data on its website, but German law insists that clients know specific details about what their data will be used for and why.
