Welcome to The Privacy Perspective.
Via weekly posts, we provide insight, analysis and comment on developments in privacy law internationally, focusing mainly on the UK and the EU. In doing so we seek to promote the accessibility of privacy-oriented commentary to legal professionals and interest parties.
We have a particular interest in instances where the right to privacy must be balanced against other fundamental rights, such as freedom of expression. Our remit also extends to issues of net neutrality, data profiling, surveillance, and cybersecurity.
If you find our content of interest please do register your email to receive updates. Any comments or contributions are encouraged and appreciated.
We take a broad definition of privacy as a value to ensure a holistic approach in our coverage:
“…there is no general tort of invasion of privacy. But the right to privacy is in a general sense one of the values, and sometimes the most important value, which underlies a number of more specific causes of action, both at common law and under various statutes…” – Lord Hoffman in Campbell v MGN  UKHL 22 at p.43
