Almost everyone would consider their privacy to be of fundamental importance to their life. The introduction into this country of the Human Rights Act which incorporated the European Convention on Human Rights into our legislation ensured that the law reflects the entitlement of every person, from every walk of life, to enjoy a private life.

Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights states that: ‘Everyone has the right to respect for his private and family life, his home and his correspondence.’

If your privacy is interfered with then you may have a legal claim. If you have reason to believe there will be an invasion of your privacy it may be possible to get a Court order restraining this (an injunction).
