    When WiFi is used, the phone company is not involved. For example, my Windows Phone has never been used with a phone service.

     

    @blowdart : I need to keep up, I'm familiar with the early version :

    "The oldest technique, present as a feature in early version of Microsoft's GUIDGEN SDK tool, works by simply outputting the set of MAC-based version 1 GUIDs corresponding to a time interval, taking advantage of the fact that the time field in v1 GUIDs has a resolution of 100ns, which allows a million sequential GUIDs to be generated by simply locking out other GUID generators on the computer for a tenth of a second (or 10000 GUIDs in a millisecond). These sequential GUIDs are unique, but the increment happens in the Data1 field, not at the end of the GUID."

    At some point there are going to need to be verifiable, transparent, secure, auditable etc. standards for exactly how data gets used after it goes to someone's servers, not just a vague privacy policy.

    If Microsoft is following any of the industry or government standards for dealing with private data, they will already have something like this.

    They'll certainly have something like that for PII like emails, Azure, SkyDrive and Microsoft accounts, and will have at least PCI for credit card / bank account details.

    Generally speaking the companies to worry about are not the big ones (when was the last time Microsoft or Google lost your data?). It's the ones that are big enough to have lots of customers and small enough to have not invested at all in security.
