Is Microsoft snooping on your computer? Analysts claim Windows 10 sends identifiable information to tech giant EVEN when told not to

Ars Technica claims Windows 10 sends identifiable data to Microsoft
This happened when they activated privacy protection settings
Information seemed to be transmitted when OneDrive was disabled too

Microsoft has previously said it does not collect data without users' consent, but work by Ars Technica could be interpreted as contradicting the statement.

The technology website's report seems to show that Windows 10 still contacts Microsoft even when certain internet-reliant features such as Bing and its Cortana personal assistant are are turned off.

Data sent and requested from Microsoft to its OneDrive cloud storage service has a user ID attached, The Guardian reported. The experts used a local login to Windows 10 rather than a Microsoft account and had every privacy protecting setting switched on.

'Windows 10 seems to transmit information to the server even when OneDrive is disabled,' Peter Bright writes.

...The exact nature of the information being sent isn't clear - it appears to be referencing telemetry settings -and again, it's not clear why any data is being sent at all.'

Within 45 pages of terms and conditions, the privacy information suggests Microsoft begins watching from when an account is created, saving customer's basic information, passwords and credit card details, Newsweek reported.

45 pages?

It is readily apparent that Windows 10 has been designed to function as a sort of Big Brother terminal in users private homes...an open portal controlled not by the user but by the mysterious cloud-managers of the netherworld. And this when it is still all brand new. What it morphs into in the future, with it's mandatory updating policy - part of the 45-page long EULA (end user license agreement), seems likely something that can be good only for totalitarianists. Be informed.
