As TASS reports, Proxima Beta, the publisher of the PUBG Mobile video game, was fined 1 million rubles for refusing to localize the personal data of Russian users in the Russian Federation.
“The court found Proxima Beta guilty under Part 8 of Art. 13.11 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation (failure by the operator, when collecting personal data, to ensure the recording, systematization, accumulation, storage, clarification or retrieval of personal data of citizens of the Russian Federation using databases located in the Russian Federation”) and sentenced her to a fine in the amount of 1 million rubles “- reported the press service of the Tagansky Court of Moscow.
Representatives of Proxima Beta admitted guilt, but noted that the company, in principle, complied with the requirements of the localization law, but at the time Roskomnadzor drew up the protocol at the end of September, it had problems, since it was impossible to transfer funds from Singapore for these services. It was also reported that from November 1, the data of Russians will be localized on the territory of the Russian Federation through a Russian company. In this regard, company representatives asked not to impose a fine, but to limit themselves to a warning.
Earlier it became known that the mobile “battle royale” and its publisher were included in the register of information dissemination organizers. Then Roskomnadzor said that they added PUBG Mobile to the registry in order to ensure measures “provided for by legislation in the field of information security.”
