I've been taking a deeper look into the fingerprinter, just running it through a beautifier revealed part of what all the suspicious numbers are about.

Apart from all the already-know information, the script indeed performs canvas fingerprinting, attempts to detect browsers lying about user-agents (this can be the case if you installed an extension that allows setting custom user agent headers), retrieves the number of logical processors (aka: cores), performs audio fingerprinting (more about that here), attempts to retrieve the amount of memory, checks the available fonts, checks if indexedDB is available(? I don't know yet if it just checks if it exists or it's looking for something more, probably just checks if it exists), and much, much more. Pretty cool, huh?

I also found this:

throw new Error("'new Fingerprint()' is deprecated, see https://github.com/fingerprintjs/fingerprintjs#upgrade-guide-from-182-to-200")

So now we also know what fingerprint script they're running.

It is also pretty cool how the guys behind fingerprintjs (who also operate fingerprint.com) call this BS a "security measure". Rule nº1 of security: do not trust any third-party-provided values. They should know they are bullshitting and the only real use for this is tracking people.

More likely for fraud detection.

But again, as it is never reveal PII (personally identifiable information) in the first place, it does not require consent and is GDPR compliant

(a) we are able to confirm that there is strict GDPR compliance OR equivalent compliance

From reputable law comparision between Chinese PIPL and EU GDPR: https://iapp.org/news/a/analyzing-chinas-pipl-and-how-it-compares-to-the-eus-gdpr/
Likely equivalent compliance or stronger but with few edits here and there to fit 1.4 billion people.

That fingerprinting to build advertising profiles makes me think they do, so don't be so fast to say that they comply with the GDPR.

Chinese advertising profiles are very different than the "global" version one. I did test many years now and didn't see any non-Chinese ads on their Chinese platform.
They even block watching movies when not being Chinese users so it doesn't really make senses to them build advertising profiles for non-Chinese users.
And unless you can prove they did used your data for advertising purposes, GDPR can't help you to know if they ever sell your data to others. Chinese PIPL on the other hand requires company to prove themselves innocent so you can just sue them on the online court and they will spit out everything they do about your data.

Apparently Bilibili has 2 domains, bilibili.com, which is the Chinese version, and the worldwide bilibili.tv, according to Wikipedia. There seems to be an English version of the policy at https://web.archive.org/web/20230113020923/https://www.bilibili.com/blackboard/protocal/international_en_privacy.html, last updated September 29, 2021.

Interpreting it is not my work, but I just want to say 1 thing: In the fifth point of the 2nd section, "Who do we share your personal information with?", the third parties serving these targeted ads go unnamed, it says they exist, but doesn't say who they are. Article 13 of the GDPR requires disclosing to the data subject "the recipients or categories of recipients of the personal data, if any;".

The bilibili.tv website doesn't specifically target its services at individuals in the EU so it is not subject to the rules of the GDPR. Only bilibili.com which I'm request CSP here is subjected to the rules of GDPR.
This article 3 of gdpr.eu explains when GDPR applies to non-EU sites
And unlikely someone in MH would provide services using bilibili.tv anyway.

I can't for some reason. I've taken a look at the source: there's trivial inline scripts, open-source libraries like jQuery and an minified script with copyright Microsoft Corporation, Apache 2.0 license, without accompanying source code (it has a sourceMappingUrl comment, but it points nowhere). A quick look reveals that the script uses XMLHttpRequest, so it could very well pull in additional scripts, like the fingerprint script.

The last time you tested was some sort of "game event" website rather than watching videos so they might just collect WebGL data for fixing bug purposes.
The only one you can embed using bilibili.com website is their video player so that's why I'm request CSP for only that site.

Be aware that this is not Google or something that is highly invasive in the west, Chinese companies like Bilibili mostly don't share data with third parties so it does comply with GDPR easily.
You can read about their statement in "我们如何共享、转让、公开披露您的个人信息".

Max20091 added a comment to T9953: player.bilibili.com (and sites related to it) CSP whitelist.

I tried navigating their Chinese website without NoScript and uBlock Origin. They're running a fingerprint script, I've attached a heavily redacted version of the report they're sending to their server. Redacted information includes WebGL fingerprint results, GPU driver name, screen and browser window resolutions, an UUID, part of the User-Agent header (this one though they already get without needing fingerprinting) and many suspicious-looking numbers. It is known that anonymized data ends up not being as anonymized as initially thought most of the time. Whether or not this gets approved is ultimately not my decision, but just on the fact that they're running a fingerprint script + no mention of the GDPR, if I were the one to decide this, I would decline this instantly.

Kinda unsurprising, given that this is a Chinese company. While the EU intended for the GDPR to apply worldwide to any company processing data of EU citizens, it would surprise me a lot if Chinese companies cared about what it said. Don't expect any straight answer from them.

Not sure when did you see those stuffs but recently, the Chinese's GDPR equivalent was launched and most of companies in CN are already comply the law.
And yes, the law doesn't have timescale required to process data but if the issue is big enough, the company's reputation will get ruined pretty fast (aka recorded in CN's Social Credit System and you may know how horrible it was).
It is also much faster to remove those by requesting to the gov in case of having serious issues (they do have pages to specifically handle these stuffs).

There are stuffs that can't be posted outside of the requested page (both personal issues and since most videos on that site mostly have owner's signature embedded), attempting to post the video to other sites is basically breaking the ToS on both sides.
My best bet is to only whitelist player.bilibili.com (aka only video player) in case of security or privacy concerns.

  • About GDPR, it mostly goes through the 2 third-parties and you can opt-out right on the appsflyer website. For the Firebase, it's probably for people who use Google account on the English platform to sign-in.
  • About privacy reputation from the above article (for the Chinese platform, not English one), it's the article is kinda wrong anyway as you can register account without entering any private information. The only thing that require verify private information is when uploading and commenting which is required by the Chinese government. And technically you can't verify account to upload as a foreign user unless explicit consent by sending an email, the automated verify system only accept Chinese info.
