What’s this lawsuit about?
The lawsuit alleges that Defendants violated federal and state laws. The problem is that they supposedly tracked, collected and disclosed personally identifiable information and/or viewing data of children under the age of 13, without parental consent, while these kids were using their App.
Of course, the defendants deny these allegations. However, they have chosen to settle out of court to avoid the expense of further litigation.
What is TikTok and Musical.ly
