Dutch Data Protection Authority fines TikTok for not having the Privacy Policy in Dutch

The Dutch Data Protection Authority (DPA) fined TikTok last month, over English-only privacy terms. The imposed fine was 750,000 euros. TikTok lodged an objection.

The Dutch Data Protection Authority (DPA) says TikTok provided its Privacy Policy to Dutch users - including children - only in English.

In end of 2020, TikTok opened its headquarters in Ireland, a country many question if it’s really enforcing the GDPR. According to GDPR, Ireland should investigate TikTok, but the Dutch Data Protection Authority says it is still competent for this fine, as TikTok didn’t have an European headquarters at the time.

“We are now transferring several results of our investigation to the Irish Data Protection Commission. Initially TikTok did not have its head office in Europe, and we were able to look into this matter from the Netherlands, but in the course of the our investigation, TikTok established operations in Ireland, “ said DPA’s Deputy Chair Monique Verdier.
