Bright Data x World Ethical Forum (WEDF)
The meaning of ‘ethics’ is complex to define – and when it comes to data collection, even more so. It is for this reason that Bright Data partnered with the WEDF, aiming to address the ethical dimensions, considerations, and challenges associated with data collection, in a world of rapid technological development where the law itself fails to keep up and provide adequate guidance on this matter. Together, we are focused on expanding the dialog around data collection ethics, forming an ethical framework, and providing practical tools for industry players.
