Children’s Privacy: UK regulators provisionally find TikTok in violation of children’s privacy laws – up to $29M at stake

In this case that could be as high as £27 million ($29 million), depending on determinations about violation of privacy regulation.

Depending on the regulator’s determination, cost could be quite high.
