The Chinese company that is the world's biggest maker of commercial drones is denying claims in a US document circulated online that it might be giving information about American enforcement and utility companies.

DJI Ltd. denied suggestions in the document, posted on technology websites, that it shared information about U.S. utility companies and other "critical infrastructure" with the Chinese A company statement said it doesn't look at flight logs, photos or video "unless customers actively upload and share them with us."

The dispute highlights growing concern among governments about potential risks associated with the flood of data generated by smartphones, and other technology, including drones.
