windows privacy 10

Hello users.
I suppose now most of the users here are Windows 10 users.
I read a lot about Microsoft`s latest OS and the sniffing included in it. Are you fine with it? Do you feel nervous knowing you are monitored?
I know that there are available lots of tools for at least or at our best stopping Microsoft and app monitoring and i would like to know what kind of software free or paid are you using for this purpose.
I don`t feel good to be watched, listened and observed by third parties.
From the website below i suggest Privacy Repairer. I will install it and use it and will come back with my opinions on it.

"Windows 10 offers many useful features and user-personalized services, all by collecting huge amounts of data about you: what websites you visit, your location, the files you access, what you search for on search engines, and much more. However useful these personalized services may be, there has got to be a clean line between data usefulness and privacy.
Windows 10 has a built-in keylogger which means Microsoft can record everything you type on the keyboard.
Passwords — the company collects passwords, password hints and similar security information you use to access your account.
Content from emails, files, chats and so on. This could be the most annoying, privacy-breaking practice of all but all this is thoroughly explained in their privacy statement:

We collect content of your files and communications when necessary to provide you with the services you use. […]Examples of this data include: the content of your documents, photos, music or video you upload to a Microsoft service such as OneDrive, as well as the content of your communications sent or received using Microsoft services such Outlook.com or Skype, including the:

subject line and body of an email,
text or other content of an instant message,
audio and video recording of a video message, and
audio recording and transcript of a voice message you receive or a text message you dictate.
Contacts and relationships: this is done if you use a Microsoft service to manage contacts or to communicate or interact with other people or organizations.
Location data via GPS coordinates.
Usage data such as the items you purchase, the web pages you visit, and the search terms you enter, data about your device and the network you use to connect to their services, including IP address, device identifiers (IMEI number for phones).
Payment data, like the payment instrument number and the security code associated with it.
Interests and favorites: the teams you follow in a sports app or the favorite cities you add to a wheather app."

And much more.
Awful.
