Sept. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Yahoo! Inc. said it received 12,444 requests for user data from the U.S. government in the first half of this year, more than any other country for which it shares information about data collection.
The Web portal provided some data to U.S. agencies in 92 percent of those cases, the Sunnyvale, California-based company said today in its first global transparency report. The next highest number of requests came from Germany, with 4,295; Italy, with 2,637; and Taiwan, with 1,942.
