What is privacy? – a state in which one is not observed or disturbed by other people – the state of being free from public attention Based on business dictionary: In general, the right to be free from secret surveillance and to determine whether, when, how, and to whom, one's personal or organizational information is to be revealed. In specific, privacy may be divided into four categories:
What is privacy? (Cont.) (1)Physical: restriction on others to experience a person or situation through one or more of the human senses (2)Informational: restriction on searching for or revealing facts that are unknown or unknowable to others (3)Decisional: restriction on interfering in decisions that are exclusive to an entity (4)Dispositional: restriction on attempts to know an individual's state of mind
Why is it very important? "My life's an open book," people might say. "I've got nothing to hide." But now the government has large dossiers of everyone's activities, interests, reading habits, finances, and health. What if the government leaks the information to the public? What if the government mistakenly determines that based on your pattern of activities, you're likely to engage in a criminal act? What if it denies you the right to fly? What if the government thinks your financial transactions look odd—even if you've done nothing wrong—and freezes your accounts? What if the government doesn't protect your information with adequate security, and an identity thief obtains it and uses it to defraud you? Even if you have nothing to hide, the government can cause you a lot of harm. "But the government doesn't want to hurt me," some might argue. In many cases, that's true, but the government can also harm people inadvertently, due to errors or carelessness.
Why is it very important? (Cont.) 1. Limit on Power Privacy is a limit on government power, as well as the power of private sector companies. The more someone knows about us, the more power they can have over us. Personal data is used to make very important decisions in our lives. Personal data can be used to affect our reputations; and it can be used to influence our decisions and shape our behavior. It can be used as a tool to exercise control over us. And in the wrong hands, personal data can be used to cause us great harm.
