    all... not

    Please make the following in red clear for me.

    Later that day, with a sleight of hand, Steve replied: "All the data Flurry is collecting is not anonymous, and the user is never asked their permission to give any data. Two cardinal privacy rules violated."

    Does the first sentence mean "some data Flurry is collecting is not anonymous," or "any data Flurry is collecting is not anonymous"? Is it partial negation or whole negation? And the second sentence is confusing.

    Thank you.

    Re: all... not

    All of the data being collected is associated with a person's name or account or phone number or something. It is not anonymous data.

    This application collected data from its users without asking permission to collect the data.

    Thank you.
    All the data is not anonymous = All the data is connected to a user.
    Not all the data is anonymous = Some of the data is anonymous.
