Apple responds to PRISM reports, emphasizes user-privacy efforts

Dan Frakes | June 18, 2013
In an open letter posted to the company's website, Apple provides information about what kinds of data it does and does not provide to U.S. government agencies, when it provides that information, and how the company promises to protect user privacy.

Apple concludes the letter by promising to "continue to work hard to strike the right balance between fulfilling our legal responsibilities and protecting our customers' privacy as they expect and deserve."

The statement closely echoes a recent press release from Facebook outlining that company's policies for providing customer information to government agencies, as well as providing aggregate numbers for information requests it has received.
