Some services are not required to transfer data from Russian users to the Russian Federation

    The law on personal data will act selectively - some industries that are subject to international agreements or relevant legislation may not transfer data from Russian users to the Russian Federation. This was announced by the Minister of Communications Nikolai Nikiforov, write "Vedomosti". Unfortunately, the minister did not give any concrete examples.

    Vadim Ampelonsky, representative of Roskomnadzor, confirms the words of the minister. According to Ampelonsky, the law allows some exceptions, for this reason, from September 1 of this year, the process of issuing visas will not be complicated.

    It is worth recalling that the law on personal data comes into force on September 1, 2015. Starting from this date, companies working with Russian data are required to store and process this data in Russia. Personal data are those data of Russian users that are used when registering on sites, making online transactions and sending email messages.

    However, the law may create some difficulties for a number of companies. So, in early March, the Association of Air Transport Operators (AEWT) warned of a possible suspension of the sale of airline tickets over the Internet after the law came into force. The fact is that tickets are booked using the international systems Amadeus, Gabriel, Saber, Galileo. Data, according to international requirements, is stored almost all over the world, and it is almost impossible to obtain the consent of the owners of such systems to transfer data to the Russian Federation until September 1.

    According to AEBT President Vladimir Tasun, the drawback of the law on personal data is that the law does not indicate specific exceptions.
