MOSCOW, July 04. /ITAR-TASS/. At the final meeting of the spring session on Friday, the State Duma will discuss legal changes regarding regulations for the work on the Internet, which will affect foreign companies that have mail services, social networks and search engines.
The addendums to the legislation will make the companies beginning from 2016 keep Russian users’ personal data exclusively on servers in the territory of the Russian Federation.
Authors of the bill explain the changes are connected with the country’s security and will be effective absolutely for all corporations keeping personal information of Russian citizens. Electronic mail addresses and letters will also make personal data.
The bill offers certain sanctions. For example, domain names or net addresses which do not comply with the regulations will be put on a special registrar of those breaching rights of personal data subjects.
