The way a company conducts its market research these days can have serious ethical repercussions, impacting the lives of consumers in ways that have yet to be fully understood. Further, companies can be faced with a public backlash if their market research practices are perceived as unethical.The ease with which a company can access and gather data about its customers can lead to deceptive practices and dishonesty in the company's research methods. For this Discussion Board please discuss unethical practices in marketing research AND what can management do to avoid/discourage this type of behavior?
