Details

According to the privacy disclosures under Device information, the service everything.me is somehow privacy-relevant to Firefox OS. It's not clear (bug 1048768) how exactly it is relevant. However, if I decide I don't want to send any information to Doat Media, there's no (obvious) way to turn off everything.me functionality (whatever it is).

There should be some UI in the Settings app to turn off functionality that sends data to everything.me / Doat Media for people who don't want to agree to the everything.me Privacy Policy and don't want data sent to Doat Media.
What is the UX point of view?

Flagging Peter on this as well. Peter, will this use case be covered in choice of search provider work?

In 2.0 and above, there is a way to do this:
- Settings>Homescreen>disable Search Suggestions

However, this isn't associated with EverythingMe's privacy policy, so the user likely won't understand that connection.  
Alina/Francis, what's your point of view on this?  (user sees e.me privacy policy and wants to not use the service - how do they know what service is specifically powered by e.me?)

We are losing e.me from search, so this bug is no longer relevant.
