Non-EU company receives UK's first GDPR enforcement action

AggregateIQ, a small Canadian company, was deemed to be in breach of GDPR guidelines when it was found to be linked to Cambridge Analytica, the firm that allegedly used Facebook data to aid Donald Trump's political campaign.

The UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) states that AggregateIQ must cease processing personal data of UK or EU citizens obtained from UK political organisations or otherwise for use in political compaigning, data analytics or advertising.
