For the most part when signing up for a new service or registering yourself with a company like Apple, you would naturally assume that they will not be taking your information and selling it to third parties. Of course this might differ from company to company depending on their terms and conditions (which many of us probably just gloss over). However it seems that over in Massachusetts, Apple is facing a new lawsuit from plaintiffs Adam Christensen, Jeffrey Scolnick, and William Farrell, all of whom are accusing Apple of forcing them to hand over their zip code when making credit card purchases, and then selling this information to third-party companies for profit.
