Privacy is about the protection of personal information in accordance with the law. It’s not surprising, then, that the term “personal information” has a specific meaning in privacy law. Although definitions do vary slightly across jurisdictions, the term is generally understood to mean information about an identified individual, information that identifies an individual or could reasonably lead to the identification of an individual.

What is Privacy?

It’s easy to assume that we are all on the same page about what privacy is.
