The goal of CDT’s model best practices is to credibly safeguard individual privacy while enabling a wide range of private drone uses. Strong distrust of drones on privacy grounds holds back broad public acceptance of the industry, but following a meaningful set of best practices can help address these issues. Ultimately, it is in the best interests of both the industry and consumers to establish sensible norms for drone privacy, transparency, and accountability. CDT believes our proposed privacy best practices for drones advance us toward that goal.
