The lawsuit had been filed by German consumer protection group Verbraucherzentrale Bundesverband (VZBV), who specifically raised concerns over Apple asking users for “global consent” for using their data without much information as to where and how it would be used.
From Bloomberg’s report:
Apple asked customers in the terms for “global consent” to use their data, while German law requires that clients know in detail what data is used for what purpose, VZBV said. Apple also may not ask for permission to use names, addresses and phone numbers of users’ contacts.
The court also blocked the iPad maker’s rule for delivering the data to other companies that use them for advertising, according to VZBV.
