Details There are times when two essential human rights may appear to be in conflict, or need to be balanced against one another. This paper examines the right of a party, such as officials, a group of people or an individual, to ‘privacy and confidentiality’ when others may have a conflicting ‘right to know’ about them. Although this conflict has already been studied by other researchers, there is a lot of controversy about a rightful balance in new technology driven situations.
