U.S. Const., Amend. IV:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

Amendment IV forms the basis for the Exclusionary Rule, which, if validly applied, excludes inculpatory evidence from consideration as to the criminal responsibility and therefore criminal liability of a person or entity. That is, it functions to prohibit unlawful searches and seizures, including seizures of the person constituted by the arrest and detention of persons. In this context, the "right to privacy" is the "right to be free of unlawful searches and seizures"--and, of course, it is a very highly-qualified right.
