Absolutely right. Nothing is for free. They do not steel the data from You, because You deliver it to them. They live from selling Your data to corporations that buy more data from other sources, correlate them and try to personalize them. Then the enriched date is sold for advertising purposes or ...? Microsoft does the same and everybody who installs W10 gives his acceptance by signing the licence agreement.
So everybody should decide for himself how to deal with that reality. I decided for me to reduce the data leakage to a minimum, but I admit that it is not an easy job and costs lot of time.
