Microsoft doesn't even say that on this page. For the "Enhanced" telemetry option, they say "This option also lets us collect diagnostic data that includes the memory state of your device when a system or app crash occurs, which may unintentionally include parts of a document you were working on when a problem occurred."

For the "Full" telemetry option, they say "Microsoft will randomly select a small number of devices, from those at the Full level and exhibiting the problem, from which to gather all of the data needed to diagnose and fix the problem (including user content that may have triggered the issue). If an error report contains personal data, we won’t use that information to identify, contact, or target advertising to you."

Can you imagine the system resources/ internet bandwidth... that also takes to function
Which is really the nut of the problem or concerns really.
Most crashes and issues can usually be tied to a recommended/ Optional windows update same as all of these telemetry updates are along with many useless to me new fonts.........
