UK Watchdog Orders Cambridge Analytica to Hand Over American's Personal Data

May 06, 2018

According to Reuters, Britain’s data privacy watchdog has ordered Cambridge Analytica to hand over all the personal information it holds on U.S. academic David Carroll. Data privacy activists say that it sets a precedent that would enable millions of other U.S. voters to request information that the company had collected on them. The Information Commissioner’s Office sent a notice to the data firm to provide the information it holds on Carroll, saying failure to do so would be a criminal offence punishable by an unlimited fine.
