9/ so what data exactly is being processed by the embedded trackers and for what purposes? What is the legal basis under the GDPR? Does the uCampaign as the developer of the app have access to that data or otherwise harvest it? Is the data held on uCampaign servers in the US?

12/ Unlike on the Google Play store, after installing the app, individuals are advised the app is ‘powered by uCampaign’ - clicking the link takes you to the uCampaign home page. The Privacy policy is ambiguous in many ways

14/ The registration email appears to come from Conservative Campaigner but in fact comes from support@ucampaign.co So, data is processed and held by uCampaign in the US. This raises more questions.
