As we know information technology has a special role in the organization and retrieval of information to such a huge extent that was almost impossible before. This may entail interest and loss. This article attempts to answer two questions: what is the definition of privacy? And In which cases respect for privacy is necessary? Discussing about the concept of ‘privacy’, the paper presents a value-judgment on disclosure of privacy information with regard to Islamic values. Then it points out that one action may be known as being under several titles; so, there can be independent value-judgment in terms of each title. The Next point is that sometimes the value of privacy is in antithesis to the value of institutional purposes; in such a case, solving the conflict should be done according to priority of values in the teaching of Islam.
