Report on Government Information January 1 - June 30, 2015 Apple takes our commitment to protecting your data very seriously and we work incredibly hard to deliver the most secure hardware, software and services available. We also believe every customer has a right to understand how their personal information is handled. For government information requests, we report as much detail as we are legally allowed. When we receive an account request from law enforcement requesting a customer s personal information, we will notify the customer a request concerning their personal data was made unless we are explicitly prohibited from doing so. We are reserving the right to make exceptions, such as for extreme situations when we believe disclosing information could put a child or other person in serious danger, or where notice is not applicable to the underlying facts of the case. Any government agency demanding customer content from Apple must get a search warrant. When we receive such a demand, our legal team carefully reviews it. If there s a question about the legitimacy or scope of the request we challenge it, as we have done as recently as this year. We only comply with information requests once we are satisfied that the request is valid and appropriate, and then we deliver the narrowest possible set of information. How We Report Device Emergency National Security Orders Deletion The following tables detail account requests, device requests, emergency requests, National Security Orders, and requests for account deletion Apple received from January 1 through June 30, Table 1 shows device requests. The vast majority of the requests we receive from law enforcement relate to information about lost or stolen devices, and we report these as device requests. Device requests may include requests for customer contact information provided to register a device with Apple or the date(s) the device used Apple services. We count devices based on the individual serial numbers related to an investigation. We encourage any customer who suspects their device is stolen to contact their local law enforcement agency. Table 2 shows account requests. Responding to an account request usually involves providing information about an account holder s itunes or icloud account, such as a name and an address. In certain cases, we are asked to provide customers icloud content, which may include stored photos, , ios device backups, documents, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks. We consider these requests very carefully and provide account content when the legal request is a search warrant. Table 3 shows all the emergency and/or exigent requests that we have received globally. Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 2702(b)(8) and 2702(c)(4) Apple may voluntarily disclose information, including contents of communications and customer records, to a federal, state, or local governmental entity if Apple believes in good faith that an emergency involving imminent danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires such disclosure without delay. The number of emergency requests that Apple deemed to be exigent and responded to is detailed in Table 3. Table 4 shows all the national security orders we have received, including orders received under FISA and National Security Letters ( NSLs ). To date, Apple has not received any orders for bulk data. We report all the national security orders we have received, including orders received under FISA and National Security Letters ( NSLs ), in bands of 250. Though we want to be more specific, this is currently the narrowest range allowed by the government. Table 5 shows the number of account deletion requests we have received and how often we have complied with these demands.
