 +===Ethics in big data===
 +
 +Ethics in big data is a complicated issue. Collecing the data is one part, but using the data is maybe even more critical issue.
 +Due to how these days so much data can be collected and stored in so many ways, there is an issue of how to properly inform people that they are being monitored. Terms of use feel like an inadequate solution, and some major IT companies like Facebook simply have such a dominant position in our society that they can demand all kinds of rights from the users. ​
 +Second issue of using the data can be even more difficult. It can be hard to predict how the data will be used, and as shown by examples even anonymizing data sets can be useless, if with enough data sets some smart guy can connect the dots. Data holders have responsibility on what they sell and to whom. But even with these limitations it can be impossible to verify that the data is used as agreed.
