For example, consider the metaphor of chemical pollution for data protection. If you don’t anonymize or de-identify the data sufficiently, then it leaks something about you. While the pollution isn’t that much -- it’s not really toxic, because it can’t really be directly identified to you -- if you combine it with some other data set, then, at some point it reaches pollution levels, and then you get sick.
