Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham said:

“I welcome Facebook’s announcement that it will be shutting down its partner category service, using third party data to inform targeted advertising. I have been examining this service in the context of my wider investigation into the use of personal data for political purposes and had raised it with Facebook as a significant area of concern. The use of third party sources of data will be covered in more detail in the report my office will publish soon.”
