The common law of England and Wales does not recognise a specific right to privacy and there is no actionable tort of infringement of privacy1. However, the right to privacy is a broad notion which encompasses a variety of more specific rights protected by the common law or by statute, including the right to be left alone2, the right to communicate privately3, the right not to have personal information published without lawful authority4, and rights of access and control over the use of personal information
