TikTok’s UK entity served particulars of landmark claim on behalf of millions of children across the UK and EU

On 31st December 2021, TikTok’s UK entity was served with the particulars of a claim brought by former Children’s Commissioner for England Anne Longfield OBE on behalf of over 3.5 million children whose data was illegally collected and sold by the social media giant.

The particulars of claim cannot be made public until all the defendants have been served.

Scott+Scott, the lawyers acting on behalf of Anne Longfield, are seeking service on the other defendants as soon as possible. This is the latest step in our fight for justice and we will continue to hold TikTok accountable for allegedly deceiving parents and violating children’s data protection rights.
