Federal and state laws, as well as case law, grant individuals the right to privacy in a number of settings. These include the right to privacy in certain physical settings (such as one's home); the right to keep certain pieces of personal information confidential; and the right to keep one's likeness from being used in an unauthorized manner. Talk to privacy attorneys immediately if you suspect your privacy has been violated. Given the nature of the internet, speed is of the essence once confidential information has been disseminated online. Companies should also work with lawyers who have privacy law experience to ensure that customer and employee information is kept confidential, and to ensure that the business is in compliance with all applicable privacy laws in the jurisdictions in which the company operates.
