    We present an empirical study regarding the relative importance of complying with privacy related guidelines in the context of a Health Monitoring System. Participants were confronted with text scenarios describing privacy related aspects of a health monitoring service for daily use at home. Participants assessed the relative importance to them of simplified variants of the OECD (Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development) guidelines for the protection of personal data. The guidelines that relate to Insight and Openness were most valued. The guidelines relating to Modification and Data Quality were valued least by most participants in this context. Methodological challenges were encountered on the way, which reveal the complexity of conducting empirical investigations of privacy aspects of human-computer interaction.
