Privacy = Being free from being observed or disturbed by other people

Also see: Differential privacy
“Differential privacy, translated from Apple-speak, is the statistical science of trying to learn as much as possible about a group while learning as little as possible about any individual in it. With differential privacy, Apple can collect and store its users’ data in a format that lets it glean useful notions about what people do, say, like and want without being able to extract anything about a single, specific one of those people that might represent a privacy violation. And neither could hackers or intelligence agencies.”
