We used four topics relating to personal data processing, as a framework for the discussion:
 
 
* The principle of “no surprises” (if users found out what you were doing with their data, would they be unpleasantly surprised?)
 
* The idea of “ethical dilution” (that the more data passes from one controller to another, the less responsible any of them feels towards the data subject)
 
* Ethical issues in multi-stakeholder cases
 
* Ethical issues in multi-context cases
 
 
Some ethical factors appeared across several topics – for instance,
 
 
* User expectations, and informedness
 
* Predictability and determinism, and their role as a trust factor
 
* Power imbalances (including economic imbalances)
 
* Cost/risk assessment, harm as a privacy metric
