Byte Dance settles lawsuit over alleged data collection from children

Beijing Byte Dance Telecommunications Co. Ltd., TikTok's parent company, reached a settlement with a group of parents who alleged that the company collected and used children's personal information, The Verge reported, citing a statement from the company.

A TikTok spokesperson said the company disputed many of the complaint's claims but had "been working with the parties involved and are pleased to have come to a resolution of the issues." The plaintiff's lawyer in the case confirmed that a proposed settlement of $1.1 million had been reached.

In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs alleged that the video-sharing app collected geolocation information from its users between December 2015 and October 2016. The complaint alleges that the app did not properly provide safeguards to prevent children from using the app.

The suit cited a section of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act stating that app developers are not allowed to obtain personal information from children under the age of 13 without obtaining verifiable consent from their parents.

The company also had a separate settlement earlier this year with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission related to a U.S. children's privacy law.
