TikTok faces massive fine for insufficient cookie opt-out information

The authority responsible for data protection in France – Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés (CNIL (Opens in a new tab)) – fined TikTok UK and TikTok Ireland €5 million for failing to provide sufficient information about the use of cookies on their site.

After a series of hearings forming part of an investigation against TikTok’s online web platform (not the app), and in an unrecorded capacity, it was found that TikTok failed to provide a clear enough option to opt out of the use of cookies, despite offering one One-click solution to opt-in, discouraging users from opting out.
