TikTok makes clear European data can be accessed by China-based employees

  • In addition to China, TikTok data may be handled by employees in countries including Brazil, Canada, Israel, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea and the US, the company said.
  • TikTok has also migrated US user data from proprietary servers in the US and Singapore to cloud-based servers hosted by Oracle.
