As Microsoft moves ahead with the launch of the Xbox One on Nov. 22, the company is preparing the folks who buy its next-generation console with some changes and additions to their privacy rules concerning Xbox hardware and software.
Any skeletal movements that are detected by the Kinect sensor for games and apps can also be controlled by the user in terms of how the movement stats are managed and whether or not they are shared. The sensor can also detect and measure facial expressions for use in a game but Microsoft's policy states, "This data does not identify you, stays on the console and is destroyed once your session ends."
The new Xbox privacy polices also goes over how data is collected from services such as Xbox Music, the Xbox SmartGlass applications and more. It also talks about how ads are shown on the Xbox One's dashboard, stating that users can opt out of viewing any personalized and targeted ads.
