Apple's vice president of software technology, Bud Tribble, today attended the Senate Commerce Committee and insisted on amendment of privacy law in the country.

At the hearing, Apple joined with other technology giants such as Google, Amazon, Twitter and advised the lawmakers about the state of current Internet privacy. Tribble told the legislator that Apple considers privacy as "basic human rights", but the company does not present a solution.

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry is entrusted to develop national protection that allows citizens to access and delete personal information acquired by companies as necessary. This movement corresponds in part to the EU 's General Data Protection Regulation (EPS) Act, which came into force earlier this year.

Apple is seeking more privacy protection

Tribble believes that members of the committee want to convey all information about the user to the device, but should be automatically isolated from access to the confidential data.

"For Apple, privacy means having the right not to share your personal information, privacy is when to control that information," says Tribble. In other words, the user can decide who to share personal information with. That means you understand how that information is used. Ultimately, privacy is about living in a world where you can believe that your decisions on how your personal information is shared and used are respected. We believe that privacy is a fundamental human right and should be supported by both social norms and laws.

Apple wants to adopt a policy that other companies do not store personal information on their servers. A complete copy of the opening remark of Tribble can be made online.
