Windows shares its users’ data with external websites to enhance user experience. For example, if Windows shares your language preference list with a website that has its contents available in various languages, through the language preference list shared by Windows, the website can determine which language you might prefer to view the website in, and can straight away display the website to you in that language without explicitly asking you to set the language.
