Privacy is the ability of an individual or group to seclude themselves or information about themselves, thereby express themselves selectively. When something is private to a person, it means that something is inherently special or sensitive to them; the domain of privacy overlaps with security, which can include the concepts of appropriate use, as well as protection of information. Privacy may take the form of bodily integrity; the right not to be subjected to unsanctioned invasions of privacy by the government, corporations or individuals is part of many countries' privacy laws, in some cases, constitutions. In the business world, a person may volunteer personal details, including for advertising, in order to receive some sort of benefit. Public figures may be subject to rules on the public interest. Personal information, voluntarily shared but subsequently stolen or misused can lead to identity theft; the concept of universal individual privacy is a modern construct associated with Western culture and North American in particular, remained unknown in some cultures until recent times.

Most cultures, recognize the ability of individuals to withhold certain parts of their personal information from wider society, such as closing the door to one's home. In 1890 the United States jurists Samuel D. Warren and Louis Brandeis wrote The Right to Privacy, an article in which they argued for the "right to be let alone", using that phrase as a definition of privacy. There is extensive commentary over the meaning of being "let alone", among other ways, it has been interpreted to mean the right of a person to choose seclusion from the attention of others if they wish to do so, the right to be immune from scrutiny or being observed in private settings, such as one's own home. Although this early vague legal concept did not describe privacy in a way that made it easy to design broad legal protections of privacy, it strengthened the notion of privacy rights for individuals and began a legacy of discussion on those rights. Limited access refers to a person's ability to participate in society without having other individuals and organizations collect information about them.

Various theorists have imagined privacy as a system for limiting access to one's personal information. Edwin Lawrence Godkin wrote in the late 19th century that "nothing is better worthy of legal protection than private life, or, in other words, the right of every man to keep his affairs to himself, to decide for himself to what extent they shall be the subject of public observation and discussion." Adopting an approach similar to the one presented by Ruth Gavison Nine years earlier, Sissela Bok said that privacy is "the condition of being protected from unwanted access by others—either physical access, personal information, or attention." Control over one's personal information is the concept that "privacy is the claim of individuals, groups, or institutions to determine for themselves when, to what extent information about them is communicated to others." A person who has consensually formed an interpersonal relationship with another person is not considered "protected" by privacy rights with respect to the person they are in the relationship with.

Charles Fried said that "Privacy is not an absence of information about us in the minds of others. In the era of big data, control over information is under pressure. Alan Westin defined four states—or experiences—of privacy: solitude, intimacy and reserve. Solitude is a physical separation from others. Intimacy is a "close and frank relationship between two or more individuals" that results from the seclusion of a pair or small group of individuals. Anonymity is the "desire of individuals for times of'public privacy.'" Lastly, reserve is the "creation of a psychological barrier against unwanted intrusion". In addition to the psychological barrier of reserve, Kirsty Hughes identified three more kinds of privacy barriers: physical and normative. Physical barriers, such as walls and doors, prevent others from accessing and experiencing the individual. Behavioral barriers communicate to others—verbally, through language, or non-verbally, through personal space, body language, or clothing—that an individual does not want them to access or experience him or her.

Lastly, normative barriers, such as laws and social norms, restrain others from attempting to access or experience an individual. Privacy is sometimes defined as an option to have secrecy. Richard Posner said that privacy is the right of people to "conceal information about themselves that others might use to their disadvantage". In various legal contexts, when privacy is described as secrecy, a conclusion if privacy is secrecy rights to privacy do not apply for any information, publicly disclosed; when privacy-as-secrecy is discussed, it is imagined to be a selective kind of secrecy in which individuals keep some information secret and private while they choose to make other information public and not private. Privacy may be understood as a necessary precondition for the development and preservation of personhood. Jeffrey Reiman defined privacy in terms of a recognition of one's ownership of his or her physical and mental reality and a moral right to his or her self-determination. Through the "social ritual" of privacy, or the social practice of respecting an individual's privacy barriers, the social group

Plasmodium odocoilei

Plasmodium odocoilei is a species of parasites, that causes malaria in white-tailed deer. This species was discovered in 1967 in Texas and formally named in 1980, it was rediscovered again in North America in 2016. This species is a member of the subgenus Vinckeia of the genus Plasmodium; the genus Plasmodium is most related to Polychromophilus. The relation between these genera is under debate at present and a revision of the taxonomy seems to be required. From this study it seems that Plasmodium odocoilei belongs to a clade, most related to Polychromophilus; this study was based on mitochondria and nuclear genes which makes it to have the correct topology. Molecular genetic studies have show that this species is at least two separate species that diverged between 2.3 million years ago to 6 million years ago. This species has large vacuoles in the erythroctic stages, it causes discolouration of the host erythrocyte. Anopheles punctipennis This species has been detected in while-tailed deer in the eastern United States.
