While there is a certain consensus on general principles for addressing these issues, little is known about when and why decision-makers display such ethical conduct or opt for unethical behavior with regard to collecting, storing, analyzing, or using big data.

Moral disengagement describes psychological mechanisms by which individuals rationalize and thus disengage themselves from unethical conduct.
