Aleksandr Kogan requested and gained access to information from users who chose to sign up to his app, and everyone involved gave their consent.... In 2015, we learned ... Dr. Aleksandr Kogan lied to us and violated our Platform Policies by passing data from an app that was using Facebook Login to SCL/Cambridge Analytica...
Approximately 270,000 people downloaded the app... consent ... to access information such as the city ... content they had liked, as well as more limited information about friends who had their privacy settings set to allow it.... By passing information on to a third party... he violated our platform policies. ... in 2015, we removed his app ... and demanded certifications ... that the information had been destroyed... Several days ago, we received reports ... not all data was deleted... We are suspending SCL/Cambridge Analytica, Wylie and Kogan from Facebook, pending further information.
