We commit to using and processing data in an ethically acceptable way in all aspects of our business.
The purpose of this policy is to formalise SPERI’s data ethics principles and describe how we wish to use and process data, making it clear to our customers, employees and other stakeholders that we are dedicated to these efforts.
We always comply with statutory regulations regarding data and privacy protection; however, we also recognise that continuous technological change and development, alongside increasing risks and benefits from utilisation of big data, require thoughtful and responsible decision-making where existing laws and regulations do not necessarily suffice.
