Data mining is the computer oriented process to evaluate vast database and extract the meaning of the data. Privacy is inter-related with secrecy and anonymity. Thus privacy preserving in data mining means maintaining secrecy which is concerned with the information that the others can retrieve from the user. Then the loss of privacy means leakage of that information. So to mine the information from huge database number of algorithms has developed that assures mining with privacy preserving. These algorithms are used to secure the sensitive items while extracting the appropriate knowledge from database. In this paper, the methodology used to preserve the privacy in data mining using association rule is used because association rule mining is one of the important aspect in data mining.
