This category covers privacy and related issues, hacking, snooping and surveillance, data protection and security. Concerns both online and offline topics, government and corporate. Privacy may cover both deliberate and accidental intrusions upon personal space and information, as well as measures to counter them. This includes any data breach resulting in the loss and public availability of personal data like retail and service customer information, health and financial data, and identity documents. There are also many surrounding political and cultural issues, e.g.: what is the balance between rights to privacy and a need to enforce laws? Do governments have a right to monitor all financial transactions? Can companies sell your health, genetic, identity and personal records if you unwittingly signed them over in a EULA or user agreement?
