Many papers and articles attempt to define or even quantify privacy, typically with a major focus on anonymity. We propose new means of describing (obviously only observable) characteristics of a system to reflect the role of contexts for profiling -- and linking -- users with actions in a system. We believe this approach should allow for evaluating privacy in large data sets.
