Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Moritz Körner
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: TikTok

In the United States, the Federal Trade Commission found that the popular Chinese-owned video app TikTok had illegally collected personal information from children, and in February it handed the company a USD 5.7 million fine.

In October, two influential US senators called on the Trump administration to investigate whether the app posed a national security risk to the US. Shortly after, the US Government launched a national security review into the TikTok developer company’s USD 1 billion acquisition of its rival, the US company Musical.ly.

Has the Commission been in touch with the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) or national data protection authorities about TikTok? Are there concerns about TikTok’s data collection methods? Does the Commission believe that TikTok poses a security risk to the EU or its Member States?
