Inquiry launched into data use from no-deal Brexit ads on Facebook

The information commissioner’s office will use its legal powers to obtain information from Facebook about a secretive network of pro-Brexit advertising campaigns on the social network, following revelations about the involvement of Sir Lynton Crosby’s company in campaigns pushing for a hard no-deal Brexit.

The ICO will look at how any data, potentially including email addresses collected in the process of encouraging people to email their MP, is being handled.
