What is privacy?
Being alone. - Shane (age 4)
8
Westin Privacy and Freedom 1967
  • Privacy is the claim of individuals, groups or
    institutions to determine for themselves when,
    how, and to what extent information about them is
    communicated to others
  • Privacy is not an absolute

9
Westins four states of privacy
  • Solitude
  • individual separated form the group and freed
    form the observation of other persons
  • Intimacy
  • individual is part of a small unit
  • Anonymity
  • individual in public but still seeks and finds
    freedom from identification and surveillance
  • Reserve
  • the creation of a psychological barrier against
    unwanted intrusion - holding back communication

10
Westins four functions of privacy
  • Personal autonomy
  • control when you go public about info
  • Emotional release
  • be yourself
  • permissible deviations to social or institutional
    norms
  • Self-evaluation
  • Limited and protected communication

11
Information vs. decisional privacy
  • Information privacy concerns the collection, use,
    and disclosure of personal information
  • Decisional privacy concerns the freedom to make
    decisions about one's body and family

12
Different views of privacy
  • Privacy as limited access to self
  • the extent to which we are known to others and
    the extent to which others have physical access
    to us
  • Privacy as control over information
  • not simply limiting what others know about you,
    but controlling it
  • this assumes individual autonomy, that you can
    control information in a meaningful way (not
    blind click through, for example)

13
Privacy as deprivation?
  • Deprived of being heard and seen by others
  • Deprived of being contacted by others
  • Deprived of benefits that come as a result of
    your personal information being available to
    others

14
Privacy as animal instinct
  • Is privacy necessary for species survival?

Information privacy
  • In 17th century America, colonists began to
    collect information about each other
  • Census, birth and death records, school records,
    tax records
  • Informants reported people who behaved badly
  • Disorderly children, nightwalkers, Sabbath
    breakers, atheists, drunks

16
Privacy of personal space
  • Historically, depended a lot on the type and
    proximity of available housing
  • In 18th century Europe, most people lived in
    cities where houses were close together, but
    small number of people lived in each house
  • In 18th century America, people lived far away
    from each other but many people lived in each
    house and even shared beds

17
Communication privacy
  • When all communication was oral, communication
    privacy depended on
  • Communicating without someone overhearing
  • Communicating with people who wouldnt tell
    others
  • Written communications brought new opportunities
    for privacy violations
  • In 18th century America, postal mail was not
    necessarily private
  • Sealing wax, basic encryption used to increase
    privacy
  • 1782 - Congress made it illegal to open other
    peoples mail
  • Later the invention of the adhesive envelope
    increased communications privacy

18
Telegraph
  • In the late nineteenth century the telegraph
    became a popular means of long distance
    communication
  • Messages could be coded, but you could not
    recover damages due to transmission errors if the
    message was coded
  • Telegraph operators were supposed to keep
    messages confidential
  • Occasional subpoenas for telegraph messages

19
Cameras
  • Cameras, especially portable snap cameras
    (1888), raised new privacy concerns
  • Telephoto lenses
  • Video cameras
  • Hidden cameras
  • Web cams
  • Satellite images

20
Multiple facets of privacy
  • How can posting personal information about myself
    on my web site result in a reduction of my
    privacy? How can it result in an increase in my
    privacy?
