Cambridge Analytica must return data to U.S. academic

Cambridge Analytica and its UK parent SCL Elections Ltd on Wednesday said they would cease operations and begin bankruptcy proceedings

Additionally, parallel bankruptcy proceedings will soon be commenced on behalf of Cambridge Analytica LLC and certain of the Company's US affiliates in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of NY. According to The Guardian, Cambridge Analytica said Carroll had no more rights "than a member of the Taliban sitting in a cave in the remotest corner of Afghanistan".

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

His access to the Commissioner's jurisdiction arose because Carroll's data had been processed by Cambridge Analytica in the UK.

"The ICO has been investigating the SCL Group and Cambridge Analytica as part of a wider investigation into the use of personal data and analytics by political campaigns, social media companies and others", an ICO spokesperson stated on the watchdog's website.

On September 26, SCL Elections wrote to ICO saying that because Carroll was not a United Kingdom citizen, he was no more entitled to make a so-called subject access request under the data protection act "than a member of the Taliban sitting in a cave in the remotest corner of Afghanistan", ICO's legal notice said.

"The company has consistently refused to cooperate with our investigation into this case and has refused to answer our specific enquiries in relation to the complainant's personal data", Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham said. Despite the Company's precarious financial condition, Cambridge Analytica intends to fully meet its obligations to its employees, including with respect to notice periods, severance terms, and redundancy entitlements.

Cinco de Mayo plus Sharks equals busy weekend in San Jose

A Cambridge Analytica sign is pictured at the entrance of the building which houses the offices of Cambridge Analytica, in central London on 21 March 2018.

The company boasts it can "find your voters and move them to action" through data-driven campaigns and a team that includes data scientists and behavioural psychologists.

The Guardian suggests that Cambridge Analytica had, in leaked emails, told Facebook that it had deleted the data it harvested illegally, but did not state that it had also deleted the derived information and data models from that data.

But, Facebook has since revealed the number was actually as high as 87 million.

The data firm suspended its chief executive, Alexander Nix, after recordings emerged of him making a series of controversial claims, including boasts that Cambridge Analytica had a pivotal role in the election of Donald Trump.
