The Friday order by ICO contradicts this position and orders SCL Elections to provide Carroll with a description of his personal data, as well as the purposes the data was processed for and the source of the data.

'I hope that it will help the ongoing investigations in my country and yours, and other places like Canada.

"We are aware of recent media reports concerning Cambridge Analytica's future but whether or not the people behind the company decide to fold their operation, a continued refusal to engage with the ICO will potentially breach an Enforcement Notice and that then becomes a criminal matter", Elizabeth Denham, the information commissioner, said in a statement.

On March 27, Carroll received some information from SCL Elections, but he wasn't satisfied that this encompassed all the data held about him, and it didn't explain how it was obtained or what it would be used for.

The case could set a precedent for the 240 million other USA voters looking to get their data back under British data laws.

Cambridge Analytica, the company mired in the middle of Facebook's user privacy scandal, may be shutting down and filing for bankruptcy, but its problems are far from over.

Its managers have denied, however, using data harvested by Cambridge University psychologist Alexandr Kogan through a personality quiz on Facebook, in the 2016 USA election.

Steve Bannon, Trump's former chief strategist and an influential force on his campaign team, oversaw Cambridge Analytica.

While this decision was extremely painful for Cambridge Analytica's leaders, they recognize that it is all the more hard for the Company's dedicated employees who learned today that they likely would be losing their jobs as a result of the damage caused to the business by the unfairly negative media coverage. The information ordered to be released includes information on what the firm did with the voter's data and where it got it.

'Within the United States alone, we have played a pivotal role in winning presidential races as well as congressional and state elections, ' with data on more than 230 million American voters, Cambridge Analytica claims on its website.

Cambridge Analytica, which worked on Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, harvested the personal data of 87 million Americans via Facebook without informing them.
