Some more then others like usage data.
even though what i "Technically" get from this is that they collect data ONLY when using microsoft apps like modern apps Or things that your signed into with a microsoft account, but i also believe they collect data from chrome not sure.
but the real icing on the cake is the insider program those terms and conditions are ever more intrusive. i haven't even signed that one yet.
i wont go to into details but yea...
