About this Event

Join us for a special election season event about disinformation and manipulation in political campaigning.

First up, we’re got a FREE screening of the Netflix documentary The Great Hack, which uncovers the dark world of data exploitation through the journeys of players from the explosive Cambridge Analytica/Facebook data scandal.

After the film, we’ll show you how to submit a subject access request (SAR) to UK political parties so you can find out exactly what personal data they are holding on you.

To complete a (SAR), you’ll need to bring a laptop or phone and a photo ID that proves your identity and lists your current voting address. A driving licence will suffice if the address is your current voting address. If the address is outdated, you'll need to add a second document with your current voting address. This could be a utility bill, council tax bill or a bank statement from the last 3 months.

We’ll supply refreshments!

We need to end practices like ‘dark ads’, microtargeting, psychological profiling and disinformation – many of which are using our personal data to deliver their maximum effect.
