What Are Privacy Violation Claims

Privacy text on keyboard button. Internet privacy concept.Privacy violation or invasion of privacy claims can be brought where another individual or a corporation has willfully violated an individual’s privacy. Some examples include: where a company has shared private information without an individual’s consent; where an individual has used their employment position to access private information; where an individual has non-consensually shared intimate images; and where an individual distributes or shares private information obtained through their employment.

Understanding Privacy Violation Claims

This is a relatively new and evolving area of law. Privacy interests and protections arise from legislation and common law. Some types of privacy violation claims have been recognized in other jurisdictions or provinces, but have yet to be recognized by the Courts in New Brunswick. Because of the increasingly digital nature of storing and sharing information, there are new types of claims being considered by Courts. Because of the evolving nature of these types of claims, it is important that these types of claims be carefully framed in any documents initiating the claim.

Damages may be awarded both for financial losses and also for distress, humiliation or anguish caused by the wrongful conduct.
