All this will be possible because the Chinese platform, complementing the European data center in Dublin already announced last year, will build another in the Irish capital and one in the Hamar region of Norway. The latter will also operate using 100% renewable energy, mainly derived from local hydroelectric plants. TikTok has already started storing the data of the more than 150 million European people who access the platform each month in Ireland and will continue to do so throughout 2023 and into 2024. Once completed, the three data centers will be able to store data of users thanks to a total annual investment of 1.2 billion euros.

At the root of the ban is growing concern over the processing of user data by ByteDance, the parent company of the social network, after its admission to having traced at least two US journalists. These include the United States, Canada, Denmark and the European Commission.
