Immense concerns are already prevailing with respect to the protection of personal data and information, in essence the right to one’s privacy. The right to privacy refers to the specific right of an individual to control the collection, use and disclosure of personal information. Personal information could be in the form of personal interests, habits and activities, family records, educational records, communication records including mail and telephone, medical records, financial records etc. The privacy rights have to be promoted and protected not only in the physical world but also in the virtual world like cyber space. Privacy if not properly protected faces the danger of being abused by other entities of the cyber space. This has generated a hot debate about the protection of privacy in cyber space.
