    access modifier is not dependent on data types. Private access modifier as the name suggests is visible only within the class where its defined.

    There's not much more about private access modifier. Private can be applied to constructors, methods (both instance and class methods), fields (again both instance and class) and inner/nested types.
    As already stated by dineshj83, private members are only visible within the class where it's used. And consequently, private members are never inherited by subclasses and thus private instance methods cannot be "overridden".

    Primitive types are only: boolean, byte, short, char, int, long, float and double. Each of these types uses a well known number of bits and contains a numerical value (apart boolean which is true/false). All other types are "reference" types.
