European Data Protection Board fines TikTok 345 million

Η Ιρλανδική Επιτροπή Προστασίας Δεδομένων (DPC ή Data Protection Commission) ανακοίνωσε σήμερα την απόφασή της να επιβάλει 345 εκατομμυρίων ευρώ στην TikTok λόγω αστοχιών στον GDPR κατά την επεξεργασία των προσωπικών δεδομένων των παιδιών χρηστών της πλατφόρμας.

The research, which focused on the period between July 31 and December 31 , reviewed TikTok's obligations under the GDPR.

The EU-wide European Data Protection Board's final decision was passed on August 2, 2023, and further findings were to be included in the DPC's draft decision that would lead to not only a fine, but also a reprimand for TikTok ordering the company to comply within 3 months from the notification of the decision.

A chart showing the full summary of the findings is shown above, as provided by the DPC, with a breakdown of exactly what was found with TikTok's breaches of GDPR requirements.

The graphic mainly focuses on how the age verification feature was not sufficient to prevent users from accessing the platform by entering false information to bypass verification, but also on failures with the “Family Pairing” feature that gives parents options to disable certain functions to protect instant messages.
