Privacy law is the law that governs a person’s right to have his or her privacy and personal information protected. Privacy law covers medical privacy, financial privacy, online privacy, communication privacy, home privacy, and several types of privacy. Essentially, under US law, citizens have the right to a certain amount of privacy. This means that if a person has his or her privacy violated, then he or she can sue the party responsible for the breach of privacy. If the lawsuit is won, then damages can be collected to make the party whole again.
In our digital age, Privacy Law affects more than just a simple invasion of one’s personal identifiable information. The landscape evolved into companies providing more disclosures on how your data is collected and what for purposes. The EU put in place the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) one of the most protective laws ever put into place.
