  • To respect the privacy of the people whose data is confided in me;
  • To maintain the utmost respect for the individuals whose data I am analyzing;
  • To be transparent, open, and honest about the type of analysis I am applying to their data;
  • To never use my knowledge to violate human rights and civil liberties, even under threat;
