Publish to Web Message - Microsoft May Display This Report

When you choose to publish a report to the web, a message box pops that states that among other warnings "Microsoft may display this report on a public website or a public gallery"

 

Has anyone been contacted by Microsoft to include this somewhere?

 

For example the Publish to Web page has a carousel that features some great solutions, and there is the Data Stories Gallery where individuals can share their amazing work. I can see places where this disclaimer would potentially allow MS to use the content, but I would like to think they have reached out to the customers first. 

 

Maybe this is just a health dose of paranoia, or maybe they are just trying to reinforce the idea that "Hey, you are really making this completely public - are you sure you are comfortable with what that really means". I'd love some additional perspective or any experiences people may have had around this. Thanks!
