MOSCOW, July 17 (Itar-Tass) - The Federation Council’s Commission on the Development of Information Society will examine end user license agreements made by some international Internet companies such as Twitter, Facebook and Yahoo for compliance with Russian personal data protection law.
Commission Chairman Ruslan Gattarov said on Wednesday, July 17, that commission lawyers, volunteers and Internet users, including in the United States, will carefully examine all documents.
If breaches are found, Gattarov will send inquiries to the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications. “This is not a war against a certain company but systemic work to bring the use of personal data by leading Internet companies in line with international and Russian legislation,” Gattarov said.
He will also send a similar inquiry to the Prosecutor General’s Office with regard to Google Inc. as there are “reasons to believe that Russian and international laws on the protection of personal data have been breached when giving Russian citizens access to the Google online services.”
The senator will ask the relevant authorities to look into possible violations and take measures if they did take place.
