Roskomnadzor threatens to send letters requesting on Facebook and Twitter
Head of Roskomnadzor Alexander Zharov stated , that in mid-December he will send letters to Facebook and Twitter asking if the company is in compliance with the Russian law on the storage of personal data of Russian users in the territory of the Russian Federation.
Twitter and Facebook have been successfully postponing compliance with the requirements of Russian legislation for several years:
"So the second half of the year will expire, I set a deadline on December 1? I will write a letter accordingly: tell me, where are these data stored? They will say something to me. I will do the same for Facebook. That is, I will do it before the end of the year, as promised, "- said Alexander Zharov.
promised that Facebook in 2018 will stop working in the territory of the Russian Federation if it does not comply with the law on the localization of personal dаta:
"The law is mandatory for everyone. In any case, we will either get the law to be executed, or the company will stop working in the territory of the Russian Federation, as, unfortunately, happened with LinkedIn. There are no exceptions We will work to ensure that the 242nd law of Facebook was respected. In 201? everything will be exactly We are well aware that Facebook has a significant number of users on the territory of the Russian Federation, on the other hand, we understand that this is not a unique service, there are other social networks, "Zharov said.
The Law on the localization of personal data obliges IT companies operating in Russia to ensure the storage and recording of personal data of Russian users exclusively in the territory of the Russian Federation.
