    Google, Nokia, Qualcomm are investors in $230M Series A2 for Finnish phone maker, HMD Global

    Mobile device maker HMD Global has announced a $230M Series A2 -- its first tranche of external funding since a $100M round back in 2018 when it tipped over into a unicorn valuation. Since late 2016 the startup has exclusively licensed Nokia's brand for mobile devices, going on to ship some 240M devices to date. Its latest cash injection is notable both for its size (HMD claims it as the third largest funding round in Europe this year); and the profile of the strategic investors ploughing in capital -- namely: Google, Nokia and Qualcomm.

    Google rolls out virtual visiting card in India

    Google has rolled out a new Search feature in India that enables influencers, entrepreneurs, freelancers, or anyone else who wants to be easily discovered online create a virtual visiting card in what appears to be the company's latest attempt to add more LinkedIn -esque functionalities into its search engine. The company said it has rolled out the feature, called people cards, first in India because of the special affinity people in the world's second largest internet market have shown toward looking up their own names on the search engine. Users can create people cards about themselves by signing into their Google account and then looking up their name on Google search.

    TikTok Faces French Data Probe, Adding to EU-Wide Scrutiny

    (Bloomberg) -- France’s privacy watchdog opened a probe into TikTok, marking another examination of ByteDance Ltd.’s social media app, which is facing broader scrutiny of its privacy policies.The French authority, CNIL, is looking at a number of issues, including how the company communicates with users and the protection of children, a spokesman said Tuesday. The questions are part of an investigation into TikTok’s plan to set up a European Union headquarters for data purposes.The EU’s data protection chiefs in June pledged to coordinate potential investigations into the Chinese company, establishing a taskforce to get a better understanding of “TikTok’s processing and practices across the EU.”The EU taskforce would also likely give the final decision on plans by the company to set up an EU base for data purposes in Ireland. This could mean that future probes would be led by the Irish data authority, which is already the lead privacy regulator for tech giants, including Google, Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc.TikTok didn’t immediately reply to a request for comment. CNIL also said Tuesday it had closed a separate probe based on a TikTok user’s complaint.CNIL said that for TikTok to set up a headquarters in Ireland, it would need to prove that its base there fulfills the necessary conditions under the bloc’s data protection rules.TikTok announced last week that it will set up its first data center in Europe with a 420 million-euro ($500 million) investment in Ireland.The Dutch data-protection commission said in May that it is looking into TikTok’s policies to protect children’s data and the Danish watchdog in June also announced a probe. The U.K.’s Information Commissioner’s Office has been looking into TikTok since last year.TikTok is also under increasing pressure in the U.S. President Donald Trump said he would ban the app, best-known for lip-syncing videos, on the grounds that it jeopardizes national security. Microsoft Corp. is in talks to acquire the operations of TikTok in the U.S. Canada, Australia and New Zealand.The company has rejected claims that it’s controlled by the Chinese government or that user data is at risk.The 27-nation EU has some of the strictest data-protection laws in the world. The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, gives EU authorities the power to fine companies as much as 4% of global annual sales for the most serious violations.(Updates with more detail on TikTok probes starting in second paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
