Recent technological developments invite us to reconsider traditional conceptions of privacy and to extend the normative framework for the moral and legal assessment of new information technologies. This chapter proposes a new account of the conceptualization of privacy and introduces some additional normative principles, which — taken together — are more fit to capture the social problems relating to certain technologies. These technologies are those of profiling through data mining, especially profiling through data mining in epidemiology.

Keywords:   privacy, profiling, data mining, medical information
