The owner of The Weather Channel denies any impropriety with use of location data collected from users of its mobile app.

IBM Corp. issued a statement Friday in response to a lawsuit by the Los Angeles city attorney claiming app users are misled to think the data is only used for personalized weather information but it is actually sold to third parties.

IBM says there has always been transparency about use of location data and it will be vigorously defended.
