At NetNut, our core mission revolves around delivering value while upholding principles of fairness, transparency, and industry best practices. We are committed to nurturing a trustworthy and sustainable industry where end-user awareness, consent, and fair compensation are the norm. This commitment has led us to become a co-founding member of the Ethical Web Data Collection Initiative (EWDCI), an international coalition of leaders in web data aggregation dedicated to fostering dialogue and enhancing digital assurance for consumers and businesses alike. Today, we are excited to announce our active involvement in the EWDCI accreditation program, allowing us and other eligible companies to attain the esteemed EWDCI Certified designation.

The EWDCI has collaboratively developed a set of core principles over recent months, focusing on legality, ethics, ecosystem engagement, and social responsibility. Starting today, the EWDCI invites companies to seek EWDCI Certified status and participate in refining these principles further. The initial cohort of web data aggregators awarded accreditation includes NetNut, Coresignal, Oxylabs, ProxyEmpire, Rayobyte, and Zyte. These companies are demonstrating their dedication to the agreed-upon principles and upholding the highest ethical standards in the collection of public web data, while also advancing industry best practices and accountability.

As the field of web data collection continues to evolve rapidly, the EWDCI plays a crucial role in defining positive and beneficial applications of data collection and aggregation on a large scale. We are proud to contribute to this ongoing journey and eagerly anticipate the promising future of this initiative.
