- PRIVACY for Non-tech People -

Privacy is a qualified, fundamental human right. The right to privacy is articulated in all of the major international and regional human rights instruments.

Being able to make decisions privately without being scrutinized – and controlling how and to what extent that private information is communicated to others – is at the very core of personhood and individuality.

A lack of privacy can lead to self-censorship and therefore a loss in a piece of who you are.
