The most important issue relating to computer technology and the Internet is the right of individual privacy, this includes the privacy of our personal data and our actions in cyberspace.......here this should refer to right of individual privacy not just the privacy....

So verb-ing modifier ,including exactly refers to the phrase before comma

E. Internet is an individual’s right to privacy. Including the privacy

First of, D is wordy and E has an awkard full stop interupting the sentence. D&E out.

B is out for "being" which is seldom preferred
C is the best choice between A & C as it is more concise and has better flow

The most important issue relating to computer technology and the Internet is the right of individual privacy, this includes the privacy of our personal data and our actions in cyberspace.

C. Internet is the right of individual privacy, including privacy -- the best choice.

D. Internet is the right of individuals to have privacy, and included in this consideration is the privacy -- too wordy.

E. Internet is an individual’s right to privacy. Including the privacy -- Including the privacy --- is a fragment without a verb.

Imo. C

The most important issue relating to computer technology and the Internet is the right of individual privacy, this includes the privacy of our personal data and our actions in cyberspace.

A. Internet is the right of individual privacy, this includes the privacy - Ambiguous pronoun error, this can refer to internet/computer technology.
B. Internet is the right of individual privacy, being the privacy - usage of being (as a noun) is incorrect and it distorts the meaning.
C. Internet is the right of individual privacy, including the privacy - No error, let's hold.
D. Internet is the right of individuals to have privacy, and included in this consideration is the privacy - parallelism error and to have is redundant.
E. Internet is an individual’s right to privacy. Including the privacy - individual’s right to privacy distorts the meaning of the sentence as it refers to the most important issue.

The best answer is option C.

The most important issue relating to computer technology and the Internet is the right of individual privacy, this includes the privacy of our personal data and our actions in cyberspace.

A. Internet is the right of individual privacy, this includes the privacy. Incorrect because a comma is used to join two main clauses and this is inappropriate.

B. Internet is the right of individual privacy, being the privacy Grammatically correct, but the meaning is not right. This option means that an individual's right of privacy is only the privacy of our personal data and our actions in cyberspace. This can't be right. An individual's privacy on the internet is much broader than that. Eliminate B.

C. Internet is the right of individual privacy, including the privacy Correct. This option implies that an individual's privacy on the internet includes the privacy of our personal data and our actions in cyberspace.

D. Internet is the right of individuals to have privacy, and included in this consideration is the privacy This option is wordy compared with option C. Eliminate.

E. Internet is an individual’s right to privacy. Including the privacy This option is incorrect. there is no need to introduce a full stop. The full stop implies that Including the privacy of our personal data and our actions in cyberspace should be a full sentence, yet this is not the case. Eliminate option E.

A. Internet is the right of individual privacy, this includes the privacy
B. Internet is the right of individual privacy, being the privacy
C. Internet is the right of individual privacy, including the privacy
D. Internet is the right of individuals to have privacy, and included in this consideration is the privacy
E. Internet is an individual’s right to privacy. Including the privacy

Official Explanation:

Choice a is a run-on sentence and is therefore incorrect. Choice b uses being in an awkward and grammatically incorrect manner. Choice d is unnecessarily wordy, and choice e replaces the comma with a period and creates a sentence fragment.
