We are deeply disappointed by the decision of the U.S. Department of Commerce to ban TikTok from downloading and updating stores in the United States on Sunday and to ban TikTok from providing services in the United States on November 12.Hundreds of millions of U.S. users have formed a community that loves tiktok, because tiktok brings them happiness, allows them to express themselves and connect with others.
TikTok is committed to protecting the privacy and security of users, bringing laughter to people, and helping platform creators develop meaningful careers.
TikTok proposal promises efforts in transparency and accountability, including third-party audits, code security verification, and allowing the U.S. government to monitor the security of U.S. user data. Furthermore, US technology providers will be responsible for TikTok data storage, maintenance and compliance for US users.
Previous administrative orders issued by the US government without due process may deprive the American people and small businesses of an important platform for voice and survival. To this end, tiktok will continue to insist on litigation and safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of users, creators, partners and the company.
