MOSCOW, December 7. /TASS/. Representatives of Russian telecom watchdog Roskomnadzor and LinkedIn will meet on December 8 to discuss company’s compliance with the personal data law, press secretary of the regulator Vadim Ampelonsky told TASS on Wednesday.
"Deputy Head of Roskomnadzor Valentina Priezzheva will meet LinkedIn specialists on December 8. The meeting is scheduled to 14.00 [Moscow time - TASS]," Ampelonsky said.
In mid-November Russia’s telecom and IT watchdog Roskomnadzor banned LinkedIn and instructed telecommunications operators to block the world's largest professional network. The Moscow City Court earlier rejected the appeal of LinkedIn against its blocking in Russia for violating the law on personal data localization. Under the law, the personal data of Russians can be processed and stored only in Russia.
Roskomnadzor’s spokesman Vadim Ampelonsky said earlier the watchdog had sent requests to the network informing it the need to relocate servers to Russia twice, but received no response.
LinkedIn social networking service was founded in December 2002 by US entrepreneur Reid Hoffman, who was vice president of the PayPal payments system. LinkedIn has more than 400 million accounts. In June 2016, Microsoft bought the website for $26.2 bln.
