蘋果電腦最近修改了他們的使用者維修條款(TOC, Terms and Conditions),結果被專業又眼尖的PC Magazine發現第10項條款有鬼

10. Data Protection. You agree and understand that it is necessary for Apple to collect, process and use your data in order to perform the service and support obligations under these Repair Terms and Conditions. This may include the necessity to transfer your data to affiliated companies or service providers located in Europe, India, Japan, Canada, People's Republic of China or the U.S. Apple will protect your information in accordance with Apple Customer Privacy Policy available at URL www.apple.com/legal/privacy. If you wish to have access to the information that Apple holds concerning you or if you want to make changes, access URL www.apple.com/contact/myinfo to update your personal contact preferences or you may contact Apple's European data controller at privacyeurope@apple.com.

蘋果電腦在這項規範個人資料保護的條款裡主張:使用者必須同意,蘋果電腦在進行產品維修服務時,得以取得儲存於產品內的個人資料,甚至包括轉移這些個人資料到蘋果電腦在歐洲、印度、日本、加拿大、中國或美國的各個公司據點。

由於蘋果電腦並未明確定義「個人資料」的授權範圍到什麼程度,所以PC Magazine合理懷疑:根據這項條款,蘋果電腦甚至可以把任何人的個人資料都送到中國去。

換言之,現在購買蘋果電腦的產品,送修之後,就有機會成為胡佳哦。
