Privacy has been a key issue that needs to be addressed in the digital era. With development of digital technologies now information is shared so easily and fast. The rise of online giants like Google who collect personal information has also affected the privacy even more. This paper shows how privacy was conceived before the digital technology and how its conceived today in the digital era where every online user has a clone of him or her stored on a server. This clone will be referred to as an Electronic dossier throughout this paper. Privacy laws were put in place to see that privacy can be maintained even when using digital technologies but this hasn’t been enough and therefore the paper suggests some more alternatives than can be done by user in order to keep their privacy right.
