The right to privacy is one of the rights and freedoms that its purpose is consistent with human rights. This right protects the freedom, and respects the fundamental human rights. It is recognized in numerous national and international instruments. In the context of recognizing this right, two issues are very important. The first is the scope of the concept of privacy; it takes a different and undetermined meaning with considering the differences between societies. The second issue is the criteria of privacy. In the human rights literature, one can detect several criteria to better understand privacy. These criteria include: "separation", "custom", "will of the people" and "democracy". This paper attempts to analyze these two dimensions of the right to privacy. The main assumption of this article is based on the belief that privacy is an undetermined concept, and is defined according to the culture and customs of different communities. Finally, every person, nation and country it defines, recognizes and supports it according to the norms.
