 Tiktok responds to investigation by French privacy regulator


The spokesman said that so far, the French national information and Freedom Commission is still investigating tiktok and is participating in the relevant work being carried out by the European Union. Their investigation is part of the recently established EU tiktok task force. The spokesman pointed out that the Irish Data Protection Council (DPC) could become the lead agency (EU) in investigating tiktok.

Asked about the French investigation, tiktok responded, protecting the privacy and security of tiktok users is our top priority, Reuters said. We are aware of cnils investigation and are fully cooperating with them.

Recently, it was reported that the French government had no plan to ban tiktok. At the beginning of August, according to a report by Bloomberg, French officials had publicly indicated that they did not intend to follow the US ban on tiktok. A representative of the French Minister of digital Affairs said that the government is currently concerned about the Internet hate speech and the protection of minors on tiktok.

In June, after a request from an EU member about tiktoks data collection methods, security and privacy risks, the European data protection board (edpb) said it would set up a task force to assess tiktoks activities across the EU. In May, the Dutch data privacy regulator also said it would investigate how tiktok processes data from millions of young users. At the same time, the United States continues to hunt down tiktok. US President trump has signed an executive order requiring tiktok to sell its U.S. business within a 45 day period, otherwise the app will be banned. At present, Microsoft is leading the acquisition negotiations of tiktok, and twitter, Sequoia Capital, Softbank and other companies have been reported to have the intention to join the acquisition negotiations.
