Every Apple customer can now get a copy of all their personal data available to the brand.
Apple has updated its privacy policy. And now, all customers of the brand can request a copy of their personal data. The RGPD hit again! Be careful though: the process can take a week to get its file to download.

By accessing the official "Privacy" portal of Apple, any user can request a copy of his data. All services are concerned, and centralized on this portal: data from the App Store, iTunes, Apple Music or iCloud. As a precaution, Apple has warned that processing applications can take a long time, up to a week to get a complete downloadable file. It must be said that the amount of data collected by all these services Apple is considerable ... Once the download ready, Apple warns his client by mail and the requested files are kept at his disposal for two weeks. After this time, they are deleted.
On its portal "Privacy", Apple also allows the user to modify some of its information, delete or even disable his account. This new online service from Apple is on line while the first complaints were filed following the entry into force of the RGPD. For Apple CEO Tim Cook, this is an opportunity to stand out from the competition. According to him, the collection of data as did Facebook does not exist at Apple. As of today, the portal posted by Apple is accessible only to accounts from the European Union. But the whole world will be able to access it in the coming months.
