BEIJING (Reuters) – China has issued draft guidelines on regulating the algorithms used by internet service providers to make recommendations to users, part of efforts to protect the privacy and data security of users, the internet regulator said on Friday.

China recently passed a data security law that will go into effect on Sept. 1 to protect internet users’ rights in cyberspace and impose curbs on its fast-growing internet industry.
