Protecting the privacy and security of your information is a priority for everyone at Apple. We work hard to collect only the data we need to make your experience better, and when we do collect data we believe it's important for you to know what we're collecting and why we need it, so you can make informed choices. Apple News web content linked to https://apple.news (the “Site”), like every Apple product, is designed around these principles.
The Site enables you to enjoy Apple News content in a web browser. When you use the Site, Apple collects information about your usage of the Site in order to understand how well it serves users, and to optimize its design and performance. The information we collect is associated with a unique identifier that is specific to the Site and not linked with other Apple services. The identifier is stored in a cookie on your web browser, and reset after 30 days. Information we associate with the identifier includes information made available from your web browser, such as device type, and the page you came from. It also includes information about your interactions with the Site, e.g. clicking or scrolling.
We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. For example, we may aggregate your non-personal information with that of other News users in order to improve the service.
Apple may also use information about your use of the Site to pay publishers and prevent or take action against activities that are, or may be, in breach of the Terms and Conditions of Use for the Apple News website or applicable law.

We do not share any of your individual data with third parties. We are obligated to make certain non-personal information and non-identifiable aggregate information available to strategic partners that work with Apple to provide our products and services, or that help Apple market to customers.

For example, Apple may share aggregate reports with News publishers to help them understand the way users read or use their content. Apple may also share information with strategic partners who provide services such as information processing, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys on our behalf. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever Apple operates.
