Informational Privacy

Informational Privacy

(p.96) 4 Informational Privacy
Adolescence, Privacy, and the Law

Roger J. R. Levesque

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on informational privacy rights—the ability to control the collection, use, and disclosure of one’s personal information. For this strand of privacy, the analysis reveals that the Court generally begins with the assumption that information should be open to exchange. This openness can become particularly problematic for adolescents who might benefit from increased protection, including protection from disclosure as well as protection against efforts to curb their access to information. How the Court recently has addressed adolescents’ needed protections provides a string of examples that may be used to influence other aspects of adolescents’ informational privacy rights. But, overall, this area of law reveals weak protections for adolescents’ informational privacy.
