The right to a private and family life is enshrined in the law under article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) that was incorporated into domestic law. Where private and confidential information about an individual is shared, this can cause distress for the individual involved as well as having reputational and financial implications. Celebrities, royalty and other high net worth individuals are often targeted by the media looking for the next big story and these people will be concerned about how to protect their right to privacy.
