Who Are Data Brokers? Data brokers are companies specialized in collecting personal data (web browsing activities, geolocation, political beliefs, etc.) from different sources, and selling or licensing such information to third parties for a variety of purposes.
Data brokers typically collect, manipulate, and share information about consumers without interacting directly with them. Consumers are largely unaware that data brokers are engaging in these practices.
How do data brokers collect information?
Data brokers typically aggregate information through what’s publicly available on the internet and by buying it from other organizations. Common avenues for data sourcing are social media sites, public records, loyalty cards, online account setup, and mobile applications.
Other data sources include banks, insurance agencies, telecom companies, other data brokers, surveys, and sweepstakes.
