Computer ethics, information ethics, personal information ethics, privacy ethics, and many other terms that juxtapose the terms “ethics,” “privacy,” and “information” call for a uniform treatment to understand the topography of these topics. This article presents the taxonomy of the ethical landscape in terms of categories that serve to differentiate among privacy-related discourses in ordinary ethics, information ethics, and personal information ethics. The taxonomy is applied to distinguish between different forms of privacy intrusion on personal information.
