I have a new laptop (last November) that runs Win 8.1. As far as I know, I have not opted in. I checked the settings for CEIP & guess what? I was checked as participating. As of 5 minutes ago, that setting has been changed. Thanks for the article.
I suggest everyone with a new or upgraded installation of 8.1 recheck all their privacy settings. Upgrading from 8 turned my webcam from "off" to "on."

I keep a Band-aid over my webcam .... just in case. :-)
