Facebook almost sued over Cambridge Analytica data scandal

A scandal that involved Facebook stored data of 87 million people being used and manipulated for advertising during elections has been brought into light by “Which” exeuctive director Richord Lyold .

Milberg London is the law firm in leading this charge ,supported by group action suit called “Facebook you owe us” demanding for Justifice

However authorities at Facebook state that “We have not received any documents regarding this claim. The Information Commissioner’s Office investigation into these issues, which included seizing and interrogating Cambridge Analytica’s servers, found no evidence that any UK or EU users’ data was transferred by Dr Kogan to Cambridge Analytica,”

Opposing party will be urging that by intervieng in personal data without consent the Data Protection Act 1998 has been violated by the firm and they have failed to meet their legal obligations .

Facebook has faced such unfortunate circumstances in the past as well namely, on October 2018, Facebook was fined £500,000 by UK’s data protection watchdog for its proved participation in the Cambridge Analytica scandal effecting 8million individuals

The Information Commissioner’s Office stated Facebook had allowed a “serious breach” of the law.

Sadly the fine, handed down by the Information Commissioner’s Office, was never paid to the users.

Facebook apologized for the inconvenience and permitted users to check which “banned apps” had obtained accessed their personal data.

The result of the most recent case is however still to be concluded as critics keep demanding and arguing that :

“By failing to protect our personal information from abuse, we believe that Facebook broke the law.”
