I'd like to map building interior plan.This would show up by clicking on the address (on the map) and would bring up another window with the building place inside it.I wonder if this would raise any 'privacy' issues. Thx :)

When you say "the map" is this some map that you're proposing to create from OpenStreetMap data, or something else?

see - https://help.openstreetmap.org/faq/ - "What kinds of questions should be avoided? (...) non-questions, especially suggestions ("Do others think OSM should do more of X, like I do?") which should go to the mailing list/forum"

I think the privacy issues are likely to be not the same around the map. But as a guide you could think of the general accessibility of that type of information to the general public in the area. Some places will be very public and others not so, but it is also worth remembering publicly obtainable data about buildings from authorities and the like, i.e. in parts of Britain and North America Building plans made for planning control purposes are available for public scrutiny and then held on file. Accuracy to changes over the building life-cycle might not be reflected. I Guess it all comes down to a cultural judgement if in doubt you could just visit the place and discuss it with someone there. If you actually are connected to the specific building you have in mind then its probably a question you can answer internally to your organisation. Note the widespread disemination of the main OSM though. private offline sub-set additions could augment it more privately if needed.
