Apple, Zoom and Ookla fined for refusing to localize Russian data


A Moscow court fined Apple, Zoom and Ookla for refusing to localize Russian data. The specified companies were found guilty under Part 8 of Article 13.11 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation.

Regarding Apple, the protocol was drawn up at the end of May, when the company was threatened with a fine of 6 million rubles. As writes, during the meeting, representatives of the American corporation noted the prosecution of an improper legal entity – Apple Inc. According to their statement, processing of personal data is primarily handled by Apple Distribution International Ltd.

According to Roskomnadzor, the administrator of the site on which user data is collected is Apple Inc. At the same time, there is no information on the website about other legal entities, which means that the protocol was drawn up correctly. As a result, the court imposed a fine of 2 million rubles on the corporation.

For the same reason, fines of 1 million rubles were imposed on Zoom and Ookla, the owner of the Speedtest service. At the same time, the court considered the protocol without the participation of their representatives, since they did not come to the meeting.

Previously, for refusing to localize data, the court fined the service for finding housing Airbnb, the streaming service Twitch and the photo hosting Pinterest for 2 million rubles, as well as the express delivery service United Parcel Service for 1 million rubles.
