The ruling says Mr Carroll sought his information from Cambridge Analytica in 2017 and was unhappy with the responses, prompting his complaint to the ICO.
Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham said the company “has consistently refused to cooperate with our investigation”.
Cambridge Analytica announced on Wednesday it plans to file for bankruptcy in Britain and the US.
