Breach of privacy legal advice
Falling victim to a breach of privacy, isn't something that only happens to celebrities and people in the public eye. Breach of privacy under privacy law, happens to normal people, who use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Breach of privacy under privacy law might occur following publication of private information in newspapers or on social media.

These examples also include, references to sexual preferences or even to sexual acts with a third party, publication of telephone calls or in person conversations where the person whose privacy is breached, had a reasonable expectation that those conversations would remain private. Further examples such as disclosure of private family matters, disclosure of certain criminal convictions, references to certain aspects of divorce proceedings are also popular breaches of privacy that victims may go through.
