TikTok has suggested using a partner to guarantee that European users' data is not transferred to China. The company proposes replicating the model it has in place in the US with technology company Oracle to store the data of US users. If accepted, it would mean Oracle would hold TikTok's source code and that Oracle and not TikTok would facilitate app updates.
In related news, Infosecurity Magazine reports TikTok introduces Project Clover in a further effort to allay European data security concerns. The enhanced measures include strengthening data security controls by introducing security gateways to determine employee access to TikTok's European user's data and data transfers outside of Europe.
