Preserving your privacy and privacy planning
In a crowded world, you need the time and the space to live out your private life without fear of intrusion from the increasingly information and gossip-hungry media, as well as from other individuals and organizations.With the immediacy of social media and the rise of ‘fake news’, your reputation and privacy have never been at greater risk. Domestic laws in numerous jurisdictions offer legal means keeping private and confidential information safe.
Whether or not you live in the public eye, you are entitled to respect for your private life. Under English and European law, an individual has a reasonable expectation of privacy and may restrain the publication of private information by third parties prior to its unauthorized disclosure. Further, confidential information that the recipient knew or ought to have known was confidential can be protected from disclosure without consent. Private and/or confidential information may include that to health and medical matters, children, intimate relationships, sexual matters and financial and business affairs.
