What is publicly available data?

Publicly available data is data that is freely accessible to anyone. It can come from a variety of sources, including governments, businesses, and research institutions. Publicly available data can be used for a variety of purposes, such as research, journalism, and business intelligence.

Legally, the definition of publicly available data varies from country to country. However, in general, publicly available data is data that is freely accessible to anyone without the need for special permissions or privileges.

The main difference between publicly available data and private data is that publicly available data is free and accessible to anyone, while private data is only accessible to specific people or organizations.


Does Bright Data collect personal data during web scraping?

Bright Data collects publicly available data only, i.e., information that does not require log in or acceptance of TOS. We do not engage in personal data collection.
