Anne Longfield OBE, the former Children’s Commissioner for England, is bringing a legal claim against TikTok and its parent company ByteDance for illegally collecting millions of children’s private information in the UK and Europe and sharing it with unknown third parties for profit.
TikTok was fined $5.7m by the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for collecting children’s data without consent.
More than 3.5 million children in the UK alone may have had their private information illegally collected while they used TikTok, with millions more in the European Economic Area.
TikTok has over 800 million active users and was the most downloaded app globally in both 2019 and 2020.
TikTok is a popular short-form video app, owned by its Cayman Islands-based parent company, ByteDance, with 800 million users worldwide.
TikTok faces accusations of violating the EU and UK data protection laws by failing to provide adequate safeguards to prevent illegal processing of children’s information.
“a data collection service that is thinly-veiled as a social network…”
Anne Longfield OBE, along with experienced law firm Scott + Scott, is fighting on behalf of parents to stop TikTok illegally processing children’s information through TikTok, and demanding that the company deletes all children’s personal information that has been collected unlawfully.
The legal claim also aims to win compensation for affected children, which could be in the thousands of pounds per child.
