Cambridge analytica and the University of Sheffield

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear University of Sheffield,

I am writing under the Freedom of Information Act to request the following:
- In 2016/17 when Cambridge Analytica made their proposal to the Corporate Communications team, was any of the correspondence held between Cambridge Analytica/SCL and the Corporate Communications team forwarded or shared with the University Executive Board? If so, I request to see any correspondence where the executive board discuss Cambridge Analytica in full. If the information is not held, please can you confirm whether it occurred or not.
- Also after the proposal from Cambridge Analytica was received, did the Corporate Communications team and University Executive Board engage in any meetings discussing the proposal made my Cambridge Analytica/SCL (as mentioned in the previous FOI)? If so, I request the dates, members and minutes of those meetings.
- Confirmation of whether any student data was shared with Cambridge Analytica/SCL by the Corporate Communications (or any other team at the university) team during their correspondence.

Yours faithfully,
