    Is there a way to disable all the hardware survey / telemetry / analytics spyware for my game? If I somehow found such a way through other means (e.g. by somehow wrapping my game deliberately into something that blocks the network requests) would I even be allowed to?

    I like unity a lot, but being required to provide a privacy policy for a singleplayer game (and a really invasive one, IMHO) really sucks. It seems useful for debug builds and beta builds, but why do I forcibly need to ship spyware for the final release of a singleplayer game?

    http://answers.unity3d.com/questions/866325/unity-5-disable-analytics-pro-only.html seems to suggest not even in the Unity pro version it can be fully disabled. Why not?
