About the fine

The recent reports suggest that Tiktok has violated UK’S data protection law by failing to protect children’s privacy which is why the UK might fine it $29 million. This was found out through an investigation. The investigation also found out that Tiktok might have processed the data of children under the age of 13 without their knowledge or that of their parents. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has issued TikTok and TikTok Information Technologies UK Ltd with a “notice of intent”, the regulator said in a statement.”Companies providing digital services have a legal duty to put those protections in place, but our provisional view is that TikTok fell short of meeting that requirement,” Information Commissioner John Edwards said.”While we respect the ICO’s role in safeguarding privacy in the UK, we disagree with the preliminary views expressed and intend to formally respond to the ICO in due course,” a TikTok spokesperson said in an emailed statement to Reuters.
