According to a statement from the Information Commissioner’s Office, the social media company may have “processed data of children under 13 years of age without appropriate parental consent”. The ICO also found that the short video platform “may fail to provide appropriate information to its users in a comprehensive, transparent and easily understood manner”. The watchdog has served the group with a notice of intent, a legal document that precedes possible fines, over a possible breach of UK data protection law. “Our priority is for children to be able to learn and experience the digital world, but with appropriate data privacy protections,” said Information Commissioner John Edwards.
