Jaker... just because you haven't read the fourth and fifth amendments doesn't mean no one has.
And yes, according to all the following Supreme Court decisions, the fourth amendment pertains to privacy
* Katz v. United States (1967)
* Zurcher v. Stanford Daily (1978)
* United States v. Karo (1984)
* California v. Greenwood (1988)
* Florida v. Riley (1989)
* Kyllo v. United States (2001)
* United States v. White (2003)
* Hepting v. AT&T (2006)
* Hudson v. Michigan (2006)
All that said, as long as you are in your own home, or if using a computer on your own local network, you have a protected right to privacy. You don't have any protection if you are on an employer's computer, or if you are in your car and not in a garage you own.

Amendment 4 The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures,
Court decisions have interpreted this to mean that people have a private life that the government should not intrude including how they educate their children, conduct their sex life including the use contraceptives , read and most controversially the decision of a woman to have and abortion. More recently the privacy library records and of electric commutation has been a issue.

The right of privacy was made up out of thin air. There is nothing the Constitution than even suggests it.
