The Center for Digital Democracy (CDD) serves a vitally important mission protecting the privacy and welfare of the public in the “Big Data” driven marketplace. We position ourselves on the cutting edge of commercial digital media developments, analyzing how the dramatic expansion of online and offline information collection, the use of sophisticated data analysis, and advances in the creation and delivery of personalized marketing are used to target individuals, families, and communities. CDD explores how Big Data practices and technologies, particularly with regard to privacy, adversely affect individuals, groups and society. The impact of these practices on equity, autonomy and agency, and the erosion of civil rights, fairness and freedom are our main concerns.
CDT is a champion of global online civil liberties and human rights, driving policy outcomes that keep the internet open, innovative, and free. At the Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT), we believe in the power of the internet. Whether it's facilitating entrepreneurial endeavors, providing access to new markets and opportunities, or creating a platform for free speech, the internet empowers, emboldens and equalizes people around the world. We work to preserve the user-controlled nature of the internet and champion freedom of expression. We support laws, corporate policies, and technology tools that protect the privacy of internet users, and advocate for stronger legal controls on government surveillance.
