Apple Maps’ Island Visit


We have recently been informed of the proposed visit to the Island by Apple Maps. A submission has been made to this office by Apple setting out the manner in which data are to be collected, including the way in which they intend to remove personally identifiable data from publicly available images as well as data security and data retention matters. The document also sets out how Apple propose to ensure the public are informed of the collection of mapping imagery, how to access further information and where to direct specific queries. Ensuring all data collected is processed fairly and lawfully is a high priority for us. Apple have undertaken collections across Europe and we expect them to understand and work to the new data protection regulatory environment.
