With this initiative, the social network wanted to clarify and explain the following: “Currently, data of European users is stored in the United States and Singapore. On the basis of the actual needs to perform the work of the individual, in compliance with a series of strong security controls and consent protocols, and through methods recognized by the General Regulation For data protection, we allow remote access to TikTok user data for some employees who are part of our company located in Brazil, Canada, China, Israel, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, and the United States.Our security controls include system access, encryption, and network security controls.Our efforts focus on limiting of the number of employees who can access European user data, reduce data flow outside Europe and maintain European user data locally.” but that is not all. Regarding the update, TikTok has also decided to communicate the different ways in which information about European users can be collected. When users create a video, they can choose to add the location, as well as attractions or other places of interest. Alternatively, they can choose to activate the “TikTok Localization” services in their settings: This allows TikTok to collect information from the respective user device And again: the social network, on the other hand, does not collect detailed information about the location of European users, which relies on GPS or other technology.
