Is Privacy the same as anonymity?

I’d never really thought about it but it’s quite critical really especially with a view to a wide range of online issues.

"we think about three levels – complete anonymity, pseudonymity and identifiability. The latter is something like a credit card purchase, where we need to verify your identity. Anonymity is where there is no way anything can be traced back to a person, and that’s rare."
