Today, with the launch of the latest mobile operating system iOS 8, Apple has also updated their privacy policies. Read the full text, you can at this link, and we publish the translation of treatment Tim Cook, in which he talks about the importance of privacy and personal data ( original here ).

For us at Apple is of prime importance your trust. That is why we respect your right to privacy of personal data and protect them reliable encryption methods, as well as strict policy that defines how the data can be used.

Security and privacy are key parameters that are taken into account in the development of all our products, software and services, including iCloud and new services such as Apple Pay. And we continue to work to improve our products. Now, information about your account, your Apple ID and all the data that you store and update to iCloud, are protected by a two-step test, the use of which we encourage all of our customers.

We believe in the importance of the pre-reveal to you all the information about what happens to personal data that you share with us previously requesting your permission to receive them. We also give the possibility to easily change the settings to limit the transmission of the data, if you later changed his decision. Every Apple product is based on these principles. If we ask for your information, we do so only in order to ensure the best user experience.

We have created this site to explain how we handle your personal information, what we collect or not collect and why. Here will appear (at least once a year or at least the appearance of significant policy changes) all updated information on confidentiality of personal data.

Several years ago, users of various Internet services began to realize that the use of such free services, they are more likely the product than the client. But at Apple, we believe that a great user experience must not be provided due to the violation of privacy.

Our business model is very simple: we sell great products. We do not collect dossiers on users based on the content of your e-mail or frequently viewed web pages in order to later sell that information to advertisers. We do not “monetizing” the information that you store on your iPhone or iCloud. And we do not read your emails or messages in order to obtain information for this promotion. Our software and services are designed so that our devices are getting better. That’s all.

Only one very small part of our business is designed to work with advertisers and is iAd. We have created an advertising network because it is important for some applications developers, and we want to support them. There is also a free service iTunes Radio. In this iAd operates in accordance with the same privacy policies that apply to any other products Apple. Service available application data “Health” and HomeKit, Maps, Siri, iMessage, call history, and any other service iCloud, such as People or Mail, and you always have the ability to completely opt out of data to any application.

Finally, I would like once again to focus on the fact that we have never worked with any of the government agencies in any country to create bookmarks for access to user data in our products and services. We also never provided access to our servers. And never go for it.

Our commitment to protect your personal data based on a deep respect for our customers. We know that your trust is not given easily. That’s why we have it, and we will continue to put tremendous efforts to achieve and maintain it.
