The countdown is on for TikTok after Schrems II

Given the US’ threatened actions against TikTok and the outcome of Schrems II, it is clear that the spotlight is now firmly on international data transfers.

That European ruling, referred to in the media as Schrems II, dealt a ‘deathblow’ to transfers of personal data to the US pursuant to the Privacy Shield mechanism. However, the ruling went much further, sending General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shockwaves across all international personal data transfers from within the EU, whether to the US, China, India or elsewhere.

However, the comments from the US over the past weekend about TikTok suggest that the US is now also potentially looking at a more US-centric approach to data retention and access.
