KUserFeedback - how to deinstall?

ub22
Hi together,

I read about the (bad) idea to integrate telemetrie data in dolphin
at (in German):
https://linuxnews.de/2020/11/plasma-dateimanager-dolphin-unterstuetzt-telemetriedaten/

Now I would deinstall KUserFeedback from tumbleweed, but seeams
that this isn't possible w/o removing the main KDE/plasma.

How to remove this package, to ensure my privacy (the reason
that either me and many others switch to Linux is the privacy!).
Additionally according my interpretation it is not (fully)
compliant with EU-DSGVO / EU-GDPR <https://gdpr-info.eu/>

Any idea how to remove this package w/o removing KDE/Plasma?

Best regards
Ulf

You don't need to uninstall KUserFeedback. Telemetry is *off* by default.

Until what, exactly?

Uninstalling telemetry completely is not possible without rebuilding the
packages.

If telemetry being disabled by default is still not sufficient for you, you
can disable it at the system level by adding a configuration file.

See https://userbase.kde.org/KDE_System_Administration/Kiosk/Keys#Telemetry 
for details.

If that's still not enough, you can also add a firewall rule to block traffic
to telemetry.kde.org, or add an entry into your hosts file pointing to a local
IP address.
