Victoria firm AggregateIQ denies connection to Cambridge Analytica's improper Facebook data use

Facebook uses newspaper ads to apologize for Cambridge Analytica scandal

OFFICERS for the Information Commission have begun to search of Cambridge Analytica's central London offices after a High Court judge granted a warrant. Judge Leonard told the court he will outline his reasons for granting the application next Tuesday.

Brittany Kaiser, CA's business development director until two weeks ago, revealed it conducted data research for Leave.EU, one of the leading campaign groups, via the UK Independence Party (UKIP), according to The Guardian.

Facebook has also come under pressure since the revelations that vast swathes of data was held by Cambridge Analytica after it was obtained from a researcher who shared the data without the social network's permission.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has also been requested by lawmakers in the U.S. and U.K.to testify before investigative committees regarding Facebook's role in the data breach.

The so-called psychographic modelling techniques, which were built in part with the data harvested from Facebook, underpinned the company's work for then-Republican nominee and US President Donald Trump's campaign in 2016. It said there are other downstream players such as Cambridge Analytica and its alleged associates who have been reported to be involved in the data breach.

Clayton Custer is one of the leaders on Loyola-Chicago and has helped prove the glass slipper fits nicely for the Ramblers. After looking shaky in the first two rounds, it felt as if MI couldn't miss from 3 in its blowout win over Texas A&M.

"This is just one part of a larger investigation into the use of personal data and analytics for political purposes", the Information Commissioner's Office said late Friday after receiving the warrant. "As you will expect, we will now need to collect, assess and consider the evidence before coming to any conclusions". "It had nothing to do with us", Mr. Banks was quoted as saying.

The Indian government asks Cambridge Analytica to answer six questions about the company's activity in this country.

Earlier this month Denham told a United Kingdom parliamentary committee that's also running an investigation into fake news that she hoped to publish her review of digital political ad targeting this May. Recently Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder admitted to the "breach of trust" it caused to its users, and he apologized for the same. Refuting Wylie's claims the firm stated that it had deleted all the data received from the platform of Facebook, once it knew about how that data was gathered.

However, Cambridge University announced Friday it was "undertaking a wide-ranging review" of the episode and had written to Facebook "to request all relevant evidence in their possession".
