Apple moved user data to Russia

  • News
December 29, 2018 Apple Rus LLC was entered into the register of personal data operators of Roskomnadzor . This means that Apple complied with the Russian requirements for the storage of personal data of users in the country, transferred the information to the Russian data center and appointed the person responsible for the processing of personal data of Russians (Kotilevsky Alexander Vyacheslavovich).

The register contains the date of commencement of the processing of personal data: December 29, 2011, and the categories of subjects whose personal data are processed. Among them are the final buyers of Apple products.

To store the data, the company rented part of the racks of the Ixcellerate data center, and the files, which collect Russians passport data for booking hotels, are also stored there.

The registry lists the categories of personal data of Apple consumers: last name, first name, middle name, postal address (shipping address), email address, phone number.

The list of actions with personal data: collection, recording, systematization, accumulation, storage, refinement (update, change), retrieval, use, transfer (distribution, provision, access), blocking, deletion, destruction, carried out as using automation (automated processing), and without the use of such funds (non-automated processing).

Similar actions Apple has taken in China. In February 2018, the company decidedTransfer iCloud user data to Chinese data centers, subject to local law. The company stressed that the legislation applies only to residents of mainland China, who chose China as their main country of residence when registering an Apple account. Requirements do not apply to residents of Hong Kong, Macau or Taiwan, as well as all other Chinese who have indicated a different location as the “main country”.

According to the recommendations of human rights defenders, in such a situation the safest option is to create a new Apple account indicating another country.
