The Financial Times reports on the U.K. Information Commissioner's Office as it attempts to work with online advertisers two months after it put the industry on notice for its data practices. ICO Executive Director for Technology and Innovation Simon McDougall said the agency had been “unsatisfied” with the answers given by the industry before it released its report in June.
