Australian and British privacy regulators opened a joint probe into Clearview AI Inc., saying they want to examine how the company’s facial-recognition technology uses people’s data, just days after the company suspended operations in Canada.

The Australian Information Commissioner and the U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office said they will focus on the company’s use of “scraped” data and biometrics of individuals.
