Data Ethics Principles

BENEFIT

Who benefits from the data processing? Are people and communities involved considered? How is the balance achieved between non-exposure of the private life of citizens/consumers and the interest of society at large?

DATA CONTROL

Who has primary control? How about access, storage, consent? Is the individual empowered? And who decides the purpose and the manner of the data processing?

TRANSPARENCY

Are data processes transparent? Do people understand what happens with their data? Are data processes legitimate?

ACCOUNTABILITY

Can the system rectify? Can data be deleted? Is deletion of data which are no longer necessary automated? Can it be verified and audited? Does the data processing live up to the expectations in delivery of their products and their behavior towards those they interact with? 

PARTICULAR CONSIDERATIONS

Are special needs of vulnerable citizens considered? E.g. disabled persons, homeless people, migrants and refugees? Are special needs of children considered? 

VALUES FOR THE FUTURE

Is the data processing based on sustainable values and the right thing to do for people and society?
