The American company Ookla LLC, which owns the service for measuring Internet speed Speedtest, will appear before the Moscow Magistrate’s Court for refusing to localize the personal data of Russians on the territory of the Russian Federation. This was reported on July 5 in court.
“The magistrate of judicial district No. 422 of the Tagansky district of Moscow received administrative material initiated on the basis of an administrative offense report drawn up by Roskomnadzor in relation to Ookla LLC,” the report says.
It is specified that the meeting is scheduled for July 12 at 12:30 (Moscow time).
It is noted that the company is held liable under part 8 of article 13.11 (Failure by the operator, when collecting personal data, of the obligation to ensure the recording, systematization, accumulation, storage of personal data of citizens of the Russian Federation using databases located on the territory of the Russian Federation). According to this article, a fine in the amount of 1 to 6 million rubles is provided.
On June 28, the World Court of the Tagansky District of Moscow imposed a fine of 2 million rubles on Pinterest photo hosting for refusing to provide information about the localization of data of Russians in Russia. On the same day, the court fined the Twitch video streaming service 2 million rubles under a similar article.
In addition, on June 16, it was reported that a court in Moscow fined the American corporation Google 15 million rubles for repeated refusal to localize the data of Russians. According to Roskomnadzor, Google continues to use its databases located in the United States and the European Union to store personal data.
In May, it became known that the American corporation Apple could face a fine for refusing to localize the data of Russians in the Russian Federation, large fines are also awaiting the express delivery company UPS, Google LLC and the Likee social network.
Earlier, in April, the press service of the Ministry of Digital Transformation told Izvestia that Roskomnadzor sent a request to Ookla LLC with a request to provide information on the localization of personal data bases of Russian citizens. In addition, it was reported that the lack of localization of databases in Russia is also fraught with blocking for SpeedTest.
The law on the localization of personal data is that legal entities working with the data of citizens of the Russian Federation are prohibited from collecting and storing this data abroad – they are required to localize databases in Russia. This law introduces important changes to Federal Law No. 152 “On Personal Data”, which entered into force in 2007.
