I have to call bullshit.
Not on the OP, but what Microsoft is selling is the Illusion of Privacy, not actual privacy. Their definition of Privacy and an average persons definition of Privacy are VERY different.
- Average Person: Hands off what I do.
- Microsoft: Collect ALL data on what you do and make it all for sale while tricking people into believing their Privacy is protected
The corporate mentality of Privacy means they can and should collect all data on everything they possibly can. To "protect" that privacy just means they put firewalls on the servers where that data is all stored. However, it IS still for sale. Here is the trick. The companies that come along and buy that data have to get something back from the money they spend on access to that data. For example, an Insurance Company. They buy some data about you. For that purchase to be cost effective, they need to charge you more than they spent on acquiring that data. End result is that you end up spending more money for things that are known about you.
Do NOT trust corporate legalese in regards to Privacy due to the very different definitions that they and you will have. Their "tools" are meaningless. The only way to truly protect your Privacy is to NEVER give them any information about yourself in any way shape or form, which you are automatically expected to do with things like "telemetry".
