Everyone has the right to demand respect for their privacy (private life). Hence, this right has been safeguarded in international law. However, in the digital age the boundaries of privacy have widened. Both state bodies and non-state organisations make frequent interventions. In fact, these interventions have to be carried out in line with legislation, with the permission of the authorities and in a proportional manner. In this article the historical origins, definition and scope of this right will be examined. Examples from domestic law will be presented and the approach of international bodies such as the United Nations, European Court of Human Rights and European Union mechanisms such as the Court of Justice of the European Union will be examined in detail.
