The voice analysis commerce also will increase to 40 billion dollars from 2 billion dollars. And in this context, 50% of customers will be location-based. There is a huge concern about location-based marketing retailers will get information about customers. And it violet the privacy of a person. In this perspective, the question about the ethical value of location-based marketing arises.


As in this process retailers can justify and identify customers’ personal choices and habits. In this case, it is not ethical in terms of human rights. Besides, tracking mobile location a tradition also introduced to identify customers’ habits over phone calls. This is also an ethical violation. Personal privacy violates completely in this marketing system that should improve to protect personal privacy safe.
