In today's information-driven society, the collection, use and disclosure of personal information is a critical yet ever problematic issue for government, business and individuals.

Newly and thoroughly updated, Halsbury's Access to Information and Privacy (2020 Reissue) provides a definitive examination of the statutory and judicial framework that governs the rules, requirements, prohibitions, caveats and exemptions relevant to the fields of both access and privacy.
