TikTok's response

According to TikTok, they take privacy and data security incredibly seriously as well. For transparency, the company said that it stores all TikTok US data in the United States with backup redundancy in Singapore.

Due to the concerns that the company may be influenced by China, TikTok claimed that its data centers are located entirely outside of China and none of its data is subject to Chinese law.

The company also stressed that they have a dedicated technical team focused on adhering to robust cybersecurity policies, and data privacy and security practices.

TikTok also denied that it does not remove content based on sensitivities related to China and they have never been asked by the Chinese government to remove any content.

To set the record straight, TikTok also said that it will not even remove 
sensitivities related to China even if asked. 

We are not influenced by any foreign government, including the Chinese government; TikTok does not operate in China, nor do we have any intention of doing so in the future.

The company also said that it is looking forward to continued engagement on these and other issues to show that TikTok is dedicated to providing a trusted platform for entertainment and creativity.
