Two men have filed a class action lawsuit claiming that Apple's privacy policy is deceptive.

PCMag: Vikram Ajjampur of Florida and William Devito of New York have filed a class action lawsuit against Apple. The two claim that the iPhone's collection of location data puts users at risk of serious privacy violations.

"Apple collects the location information covertly, surreptitiously, and in violations of law," claim the two men. "Apple's privacy policy contained deceptive misrepresentations that are material and are likely to and did deceive ordinary consumers ... into believing that their every move would not be tracked by Apple and then stored for future use in an Apple-designed database."
