While the systems deal with such large and important databases and information the factor of privacy becomes so vital. There are so many agencies at government and nongovernmental level that maintain the personal information of all the citizens. This information starts to be collected when a child born; this procedure of maintaining the information continues all the way through one's life.

There is a lot of work that is being done at the government level in this regard. All of the information of one regarding the tax records, health certificates, Medicaid or Medicare benefits etc is stored in the databases of government. Nongovernmental authorities, like the credit bureaus, moreover uphold databases that include personal information of all the citizens.
