That's the trick with privacy: It's never a total right. Even the things you do inside your own home can be breached, if the public interest is high enough. Currently, especially for the internet, I think our laws and protections are lagging behind what they actually should be, mostly because the current laws and rulings have never considered this form of communication, where you can do so many things that previously required you to leave your home and the greater privacy protections it offered.
Phone conversations do have a greater amount of protection, both civil and constitutional, but breaching those protections is easier than penetration the 4 walls of your home. I think it's only a matter of time before more internet privacy laws and cases develop that begint to extend traditional privacy concept to shop/work/surf at home actions.
