There are a lot of laws out there made to protect us in every way imaginable, and that includes our privacy. When it comes to the privacy of individuals or employees, privacy laws were put into place to protect the personal and private information of citizens. When legally talking about privacy laws they're usually in reference to laws that deal with how personal information about individuals are regulated and for the most part are considered part of a person's privacy rights.

Since privacy laws can cover a large spectrum of different parts of an individual's life they've been broken down into specific categories: general privacy laws and specific privacy laws. General privacy laws have an overall affect on an individual's personal information in a wide range of areas. Specific privacy laws are in place to regulate specific forms of information and some examples of specific privacy laws include: health privacy laws, online privacy laws, financial privacy laws, communication privacy laws, and information privacy laws.

Right now the biggest threat to privacy involves online privacy laws and especially how they relate to social media websites. More and more people are using Facebook or Twitter to interact with people all over the world, most of whom they know nothing about other than an online picture or username. Just because someone says they can help you find an industrial property in Vancouver on their Facebook page doesn't mean that's what they really do. That could all be a persona and it's up to you to make sure that you don't reveal anything important about yourself online through social media websites.

The other thing about social media sites is that you need to know what their privacy settings are so that you don't one day find your picture plastered on an ad without having signed up for it. While you may not have given your direct permission for the ad you might not have checked off a privacy setting either that said your picture or other personal information will be used on the site unless you say no. Securing your privacy is your priority so make sure you do so before having to take legal recourse to protect it.

Now that you know a little more about privacy laws you should be aware of them when it comes to the way you live your life because you never know when someone might come snooping around asking questions about the artwork you might be hanging on your walls in your home, the way you live your life when you're partying at a club, or your job as a talent agent. If you know your privacy rights you'll know which questions you don't have to answer and feel more secure in the knowledge that there are laws in place to make you feel safe when it comes to keeping your information private.
