Bounty UK sold *how much* of our data?

Can we take a moment to get some perspective on just how much data Bounty UK illegally sold to marketing companies in 2017/18?

Bounty UK illegal data sales visualisationBounty UK have some good things since they were investigated (and fined £400,000):

  • Admitted they were at fault.
  • Stopped selling data to third-parties.
