Privacy is the claim of individuals to be left alone, free from surveillance or interference from other individuals, organizations, or the state.

Because of information technology, invasion of privacy is cheap, profitable and effective.
In U.S. privacy is protected mainly by the
First Amendment (Freedom of speech and association) and
Fourth Amendment (protection against unreasonable search and seizure of one’s personal documents or home and the guarantee of due process).
