A.G. BARBARA UNDERWOOD STATEMENT ON FACEBOOK INVESTIGATION

“The news that Facebook struck ‘data-sharing’ partnerships with other corporations is yet another reminder of the many questions that remain unanswered – questions to which New Yorkers deserve clear answers.

Consumers have the right to know how their personal information is being used; and the companies we trust with our information have a critical responsibility to protect it.

Our investigation into the reported misuse of Facebook user data by Cambridge Analytica and others remains ongoing – including into these ‘data-sharing’ partnerships. We’re committed to getting to the bottom of what happened.”
