    There are a lot of good points raised in this thread. However, the main point is that most actions done on your computer are Logged and that data transmitted to Microsoft when using a Windows device when you connect to the Internet.

    From a legal perspective, by agreeing to Microsoft's Terms and Conditions, you are entering into a contract with Microsoft. One of those clauses being that the User agrees to data being sent to Microsoft. Another important clause which MS inserted into the contact was that Microsoft can change the contract at any time without informing you of the changes. There is no getting away from this if you want to use the Internet.

    What most End Users are concerned about are:

    1. Exactly what Data is being collected?
    2. If Microsoft sell the Data collected, will it be detailed specific End User information (including exact location and personal
    details) or just generic information?

    I have no objection to Microsoft collecting data on my Web Browsing activities and provide a 'better User experience'. However, if Microsoft are collecting more data and selling or providing detailed personal information to third parties than is necessary for this activity, then it is a cause for great concern.

    Web browsing data is not an issue. Recording E/mails, voice calls, personal documents is another.

    People will eventually forget about it, just like they forgot about Google's EULA, which allows Google to collect any data, it wants, including reading emails and user's cloud content and share it with 3rd parties
