    For the 3rd time:
    Being network related any NV service can be disabled (prevented) to connect to internet or send data.
    Also you can disable NV telemetry related service without harm to any apps. Only time you need them - when you launch NVCP. (Same level of "options" as you noted about Windows.)

    MS forces telemetry to customers, just people found tweaks to elude that.

    Again, as long there is an option it is optional. Period!

    No it doesn't, the dll files copied when installing the driver and run forcibly, and you are stating false information, are you another NVIDIA employee?

    The files are copied when installing the INF files, there is no way to stop copying them, he stated false/unconfirmed information,

    I wish.
    I just disagree with your post. All IT companies want and many force telemetry on us. Not all "options" are discovered yet.

    To me MS is the same as NV.

    PS Also such determined users like you can avoid said IT companies products.

    Google is an IT company which doesn't sell product, I agree collects data BUT WITH your consent AND it informs you in its terms of agreement, that is why I don\t use google anymore, I use duckduckgo, and there are always other options than google.

    But when I bought NVIDIA card, there was no such information that they will force me to gather DATA for them,

    To be honest I think it is illegal if we take to the EU court, cause all these telemetry are new and forced

    4th option for NV: if telemetry related dll-files are written in C/C++ language (not Java or .Net) then any such dll-file can be replaced by a fake one with the same set of exported functions - any developer can do that.

    Data collection in Andriod is optional, they will ask you when you first run you device.

    seriously are you an NVIDIA employee?
