      Description

      1. Start Creator with running Telemetry plugin.
      2. Set the plugin to record "Detailed User Data"
      3. Open a project.
        The project's full path will be collected and written to <user directory>/.config/QtProject/UserFeedback.QtCreator.conf:
        DataSources\buildSystem\qmake=/home/johndoe/untitled1/untitled1.pro, /home/johndoe/untitled/untitled.pro
        

      This violates the "Telemetry - Privacy Statement" which reads "No personal identifiable information (...) is collected."
