French startup, Digitale lobbied to file privacy complaint against Apple
France Digitale will file a complaint against iPhone maker Apple with data privacy watchdog. Apple allegedly breached European Union rules, France’s leading startup lobby said in a statement.
In the seven-page complaint seen by Reuters, the lobby, which represents the bulk of France’s digital entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, alleges Apple’s latest operating software, iOS 14, does not comply with EU privacy requirements.
Under EU data privacy rules, all organisations must ask visitors online if they agree to have some of their data collected via trackers or other tools.
