This paper is focused to one of the central issues of the problem of “human rights and scientific and technological developments” i.e., the protection of the privacy. This paper is intended to achieve to explain the legal measures and the state efforts to regulate and to protect the privacy. It tries to interpret the Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council and to present the major reasons for the movement towards comprehensive privacy and data protection laws.This paper seeks to arrive at conclusions that the problem is continuing even with the adoption of legal and other protections measurements, violations of privacy remain a concern.
