Dear Customer,

There is no right to privacy against photography (with or without a telegraphic lens) for text on your computer, phone, paper documents, or a book that you may have. If you were in your home and the photographer was taking photographs through a closed window using technology to peer through through the shades, etc. that would raise an issue ("peeping tom" laws), but if they were simply photographing your phone over your shoulder in a coffee shop for example, there is no protection.
