Dear all,
Thank you very much for your various contribution, advice and lead to 
documents to address my curiosity on what is Online privacy. While there 
seems not to be an official working definition of Online Privacy, how is 
this phenomenon measured currently online. Under what circumstance do we 
say someone's Online privacy is breached. Can Online privacy be same as 
the right to privacy?
