Someone asked if PI had actually endorsed this. I emailed them last week to find out, and this is what Simon Davies said:

"The short answer is that PI does not endorse products unless in exceptional circumstances. Gus Hosein and I had independently reviewed the technology at Phorm's request and concluded that it was generally privacy friendly and that the organisaton had taken all steps to minimise or extinguish personal data from its system. This assessment was done through our company, 80/20 Thinking Ltd, and not through PI."

So there you go. The MD of Phorm was being strictly honest, although he didn't tell an outright fib.
