New Delhi: The CEO of TikTok has written to their Indian employees.
Indian Government has banned 59 Chinese apps, amid a huge economic backlash against China following the June 15 clashes in eastern Ladakh’s Galwan Valley in which 20 soldiers laid down their lives for India.
TikTok CEO wrote a letter titled “A message to our employees in India” in which he said, “Since 2018, we have worked hard to ensure that over 200 million users in India are able to express their joy and creativity, celebrate self-expression, and share experiences with a growing global community”.
Kevin Mayer, TikTok Chief executive and Chief Operations Officer of ByteDance, said in a post on the company website that at TikTok, our efforts are guided by our commitment to democratizing the internet. To a large extent, we believe we have been successful in this effort. However, we stay resolved and committed to our mission, and are working with stakeholders to address their concerns. TikTok continues to comply with all data privacy and security requirements under Indian law and places the highest importance on user privacy and integrity.
