Most of our daily activities are now moving online in the big data era, with more than 25 billion devices already connected to the Internet, to possibly over a trillion in a decade.

Consequently, a new paradigm known as online privacy or Internet privacy is becoming a major concern regarding the privacy of personal and sensitive data.
