Court: Apple, others didn’t break California law


Apple and other online retailers didn’t break California law by requiring consumers to provide their address and phone numbers as a condition of accepting credit card payments, the state’s high court has ruled, reports “Reuters” (

The California Supreme Court, in a split decision, said state privacy protections for credit cards don’t apply to online purchases that are downloaded electronically. The ruling comes after the same court in 2011 said that those privacy protections do apply to brick and mortar retailers, finding that they could not request a customer’s ZIP code during a credit card transaction, notes “Reuters.”
