So if you do not agree, you disable Cortana. Do you have a problem with a companies secretary having access to her bosses email, his contacts (private information) and calendar?

How does any of this lead to the conclusion Microsoft has access to any of this data outside Cortana? Exactly because of the fact some services (like Cortana) have access to personal information access to data centers and the systems in them are extremely tight and security is beyond crazy.

If you have a problem with your (personal) information (and no, your email is not one of those, it is a public address just like your house address). Please stay away from anything Google, Apple or even anything that goes on inside a browser. Never use credit cards online, never use any sort of form, never fill out any questionnaire to get that cool free VST or gadget.

Stop being paranoid..
