Cambridge Analytica ordered to release data on US voter

Regardless, the ICO order gives SCL Elections 30 days to comply with the order or appeal, or face a criminal prosecution.

The Enforcement Notice found in favour of Mr Carroll, saying his right to his personal information is protected by the Data Protection Act of 1998. It also warned of an "unlimited fine".

"This should solve a lot of mysteries about what the company did with data and where it got it from", he told the Guardian newspaper. "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.

Carroll appealed to the ICO for the consulting firm to share the personal data it gathered on him.

In its F8 developers' conference in San Jose on Tuesday, Zuckerberg said the company was taking a broader view of its responsibility by not only giving people powerful tools, but also making sure those tools are used for good.

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

Carroll requested his data back in September 2017, before the most recent Facebook controversy, but wasn't happy with what he got back.

Cambridge Antalytica's bankruptcy filing comes after the company admitted making mistakes over the misuse of data harvested from Facebook accounts.

Cambridge Analytica is accused of wrongfully accessing the data of over 87 million Facebook users to build political tools which allegedly influenced the United States elections. Ted Cruz's campaign, then later for Donald Trump.

What is the Cambridge Analytica scandal?

While Cambridge Analytica has met its demise, there has been chatter of a new data firm founded by those in charge with Cambridge that will be known as Emerdata Limited.

In a letter sent to the firm, the Information Commissioner said it wanted to know where the data on Mr Carroll came from and what had been done with it.

The company is accused of mapping the behaviour of voters in the run-up to the 2016 U.S. election and European Union (EU) referendum.

Cambridge Analytica (CA) is accused of acquiring data from up to 87 million profiles for use in political campaigns around the world.
