What happens to domain privacy when transferring domains?

I have a domain purchased, and someone made me an offer for it.

 

Will the information in the WHOIS dictionary keep my information private and will the buyer be able to disable the privacy on the domain (once it's been trasnfered) so my information is exposed on the WHOIS database?

 

Apologies, I am new to buying/selling domains.

@Lee001 Typically registrars require you to remove the privacy before the transfer, it really depends on the gaining registrar.
