DATA-DANCE-DAWN : ON THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY TOTAL POWER lies with the students of the world. It is the students of the world who will debate, grapple, and struggle in drawing up !WOW!'s Global Data Policy.

IN EACH COUNTRY, the students should and must have complete control over their data. But the Global Founder Framers will carry a VETO and ensure that all laws are complied with. Here then is one sample and groundbreaking work :

TikTok is at the center of a geopolitical and economic battle between Washington and Beijing over tech leadership and national security.

The outcome of TikTok's negotiations with the U.S.government could have broad implications for technology and Internet companies, shaping how freely digital data flows between countries.

TikTok, the popular Chinese-owned video app, has been in the cross hairs of American regulators for years now, with both the Trump and Biden administrations having weighed how to ensure that information about Americans who use the service doesn't land in the hands of Beijing officials.

TikTok's chief executive, Shou Zi Chew, met this month with several influential research organizations and public interest groups in Washington, sharing details on how his company plans to prevent data on American users from ever leaving the United States.

And the company's lobbyists swarmed the offices of lawmakers who seek to ban the app, telling that TikTok can be trusted to protect the information.

Through it all, the company has maintained a low profile in Washington, keeping its confidential interactions with the government officials under wraps and avoiding more typical lobbying tactics.

But as the talks with Biden administration drag on, pressure on the company has arrived in waves from elsewhere. Congress, state lawmakers, college campuses and cities have adopted or considered rules to outlaw the app.

NOW, TikTok is upending its strategy. The new game plan : Step out of the shadows.

''We have shifted our approach,'' said Erich Anderse, the general counsel of ByteDance, the Chinese owner of TikTok.

He said that the company had been ''heads down'' in private conversations with a committee led by the Biden administration to review foreign investments in businesses in the United States, but that then the government put the negotiations ''on pause.''

''What we learned, unfortunately the hard way, this fall was it was necessary for us to accelerate our own explanation of what we were prepared to do and the level of commitments on the national security process,'' Mr. Andersen said.

For two years, TikTok has been in confidential talks with the administration's review panel, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, or CFIUS, to address questions about ByteDance's relationship with the Chinese government and whether that link could put the sensitive data of 100 million users into the hands of Beijing officials.

The company assumed that those talks would reach a resolution soon after it submitted a 90-page proposal to the administration in August.

Under the proposal, called Project Texas, TikTok would remain owned by ByteDance.

But it would take a number of steps that it said would prevent Beijing from having access to data on U.S. users and offer the U.S. government oversight of the platform. Some of those steps have been taken since October.

The company has proposed putting all user data into domestic servers owned and operated by Oracle, the American software giant. The data would not be allowed to be transferred outside the United States, nor would it be accessible to ByteDance or TikTok employees outside the country.

The program proposes having CFIUS conduct regular of the new data system and would create a new unit, TikTok U.S. Data Security with 2, 500 engineers, security experts, and trust and safety officials all based in the United States, who have access to TikTok's U.S. user data for business functions.

The unit would report to a three member board assigned by CFIUS. In addition, TikTok's source code, which offers insight into why certain videos are shown in users' feeds, would be reviewed by Oracle and a third-party inspector.

Some details of the proposal were reported earlier by The Wall Street Journal.
