ICO finds in favour of professor over Cambridge Analytica personal data fight

Report: Cambridge Analytica ordered to release data on American voter UK investigation to go on despite Cambridge Analytica shutdown

Most of Facebook's United States users have remained loyal to the social network despite revelations that a political consultancy collected information about millions of accounts without owners' permission, a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Sunday showed.

The decision paves the way for tens of millions of Americans to demand the return of their personal data under British data protection laws.

Another company, Firecrest Technologies Limited, was incorporated as a subsidiary of Emerdata in March 2018, according to public records highlighted Saturday by the Guardian.

'I hope that it will help the ongoing investigations in my country and yours, and other places like Canada.

One question the poll sought to answer was whether users really even care about who has access to their data.

The ICO issued the order on Friday, giving the organisation 30 days to comply, saying it was a "criminal offence" if it went ignored.

The case could set a precedent for the 240 million other us voters looking to get their data back under British data laws.

While the minister welcomed certain changes Facebook had brought about to protect user privacy, Barley wrote that Facebook had so far failed to assume responsibility for its inappropriate corporate behaviour and criticised plans to transfer the storage of some user data from the European Union (EU) to the US.

The Cambridge Analytica scandal broke on March 16, sparking interest online in the hashtag #deletefacebook.

Analyst Michael Pachter from Wedbush Securities said that Facebook is fortunate that the scandal circles around information that was used for political advertisements and not nefarious purposes, according to Reuters.

Consultancy firm Cambridge Analytica has offices in London, New York, Washington, as well as Brazil and Malaysia.

The information was used in an attempt to support the election campaign of US President Donald Trump.

Despite their understanding of Facebook's privacy settings, only 23 per cent of its users said they have "total control" over the information they store on the platform.

But, Facebook has since revealed the number was actually as high as 87 million. Once the data was collected by the firm, it was then used to create tailored political ads.
