TikTok Developer Tools and related terms

TikTok Developer Tools are technologies offered by TikTok that help publishers, developers and others integrate with TikTok technology. TikTok Developer Tools currently include TikTok Video Embeds and the Share to TikTok SDK.

The “TikTok Business Products (Data) Terms” are the main terms which govern use of the TikTok Developer Tools. These terms set out the core data protection requirements that apply to anybody that use TikTok Developer Tools to share data with TikTok. These terms also describe the purposes for which TikTok uses the data collected through TikTok Developer Tools.

Local data protection law requirements, like the GDPR and CCPA, are governed under a supplemental set of "Jurisdiction-Specific Terms." These apply, where applicable, in addition to the main TikTok Business Products (Data) Terms for the relevant TikTok Developer Tools. Among other things, they clarify the respective legal roles of the parties under local data protection laws; for example, whether TikTok is a joint controller, independent controller, or data processor for the data processing of user data relating to individuals in the EU, EFTA States or the United Kingdom, and when TikTok acts as a service provider with respect to personal information collected from California residents.
