A quote from the Windows Privacy post:
Sounds fair. But thats not all:
Examples of data we collect include your name, email address, preferences and interests; browsing, search and file history; phone call and SMS data; device configuration and sensor data; and application usage.
Thats getting a lot more personal now. Microsoft then go on to explicitly state the sort of things they will collect:
- information about your device and applications and use it for purposes such as determining or improving compatibility
- use voice input features like speech-to-text, we may collect voice information and use it for purposes such as improving speech processing
- open a file, we may collect information about the file, the application used to open the file, and how long it takes and use it for purposes such as improving performance
- enter text, we may collect typed characters and use them for purposes such as improving autocomplete and spellcheck features.
Thanks for any feedback.
