Chinese bike-rental company Mobike is under investigation by data regulators in Germany over suspicions it may have breached EU data laws, reports Tencent Tech.

The Berlin data protection commissioner aims to investigate whether the company and other car and bike-sharing firms have violated the region’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

“At the moment, we have not been notified by regulatory authorities, as we have strictly complied with GDPR and standards around Europe, so as to protect user data from being violated,” Mobike told TechNode, saying it would work to cooperate on any possible inquiries from relevant departments.
