 British regulators ask Cambridge to analyze data delivered to US citizens


The information includes a copy of the data held by the company, as well as their source, share objects and the way they are used. In response, ElizabethDenham, a British Information Commissioner, pointed out that requiring an institution to hand over personal data is the cornerstone of data protection law. In addition, she also said that it is very important for Carroll and other public members to know the personal data and the way they use the Cambridge analysis. The Cambridge analysis scandal played an important role in the US presidential election in 2016. It shared the data of millions of users in the United States to the third party. The representative of Carroll pointed out that all Carroll initiated the Cambridge analysis because the company was an empty shell company, which could make legal action in the United States less effective. The representative added that the US data law is not strictly British. ICOs support for Carroll indicates that other Facebook users in the United States will also be asked to obtain relevant data from the Cambridge analysis. Cambridges parent company SCLElectionsLimited will be able to appeal against ICOs orders within 30 days. In the past, the company did not respond to the incident, nor did it make any comment on the Cambridge analysis company scandal.
