One of the four classes of privacy, along with information privacy, bodily privacy and communications privacy. It is concerned with placing limitations on the ability of one to intrude into another individual’s environment. Environment is not limited to the home; it may be defined as the workplace or public space and environmental considerations can be extended to an international level. Invasion into an individual’s territorial privacy typically comes in the form of video surveillance, ID checks and use of similar technology and procedures.
