Is your privacy “property”?

“FTC Orders Broadband Providers to Explain Data Collection Policies,” The Wall Street Journal, March 26, 2019.  The government begin to explore how broadband companies handle your private information.

While some have questions about whether there is any Constitutional right to privacy, penumbras notwithstanding, it is interesting to see a government agency begin to look into how some major providers are dealing with (e.g., handling, protecting, using) “your” information.  Is privacy a property right protected by the Constitution or an unalienable right under the Declaration that governments are obligated to protect?

Seems like Governance to me, and maybe Compliance.  Certainly Information and Use.
