    Basically, remember theer are settings for telemetry, being the enhanced one, the option that sends most of your data, that includes typewriting, handwrittin and voice, so Cortana can recognize you, in case you use her full features, while the basic one just sends hardware usage and stability data.

    Now, if you have big concerns about Telemetry, you can disable it, just go to services and look for Customer Experiences and telemetry Service, disable and stop, vuala! No more telemetry for Microsoft.

    Just, be warned, if you want to use Cortana at it's fullest, you will need that service running, otherwise, expect failures, if you are like me, that only use Cortana for searching your files and you just ditch voice and handwriting, then disable the service and be happy. Also to note that this service is known for high CPU and HDD usage, my reason to disable it.

    Easy peacy...
    yes it was and it was also found that shortly after that MS essentially lied because data was still being sent and collected. After the updates to stop sending and all the privacy settings had been changed. Some of it was misleading thanks to One Drive and other Apps like Skype that checked for updates by sending some basic telemetry data required to keep a connection.

    I with you, Cortana is just another of many MS apps that are unneeded and unwanted, plus I plain dislike BING search which you cant change either. Well you can but hoops of fire are involved.

    Don't want Cortana? Do want a configurable search option and a reliable fully functional start menu? Classic Shell start menu (free).
