How do I opt out of TT GO Navigation App tracking my activity “across other apps and websites”?

RungirlrunRungirlrun Posts: 5 [Master Explorer]
I recently renewed my TT GO Navigation App and the next day I am asked: “Can we track your activity?” and the only possible answer is “OK”. There is apparently no way of opting out. Any idea how to work around this, as I am ok with TT following me on the TT GO app when I am using it, but absolutely do not want them to track any other online activities across other apps or websites...

    A similar request was made in the German Part of this forum with the following suggestion:

    When you confirm the tracking request of the Tomtom app, iOS will ask you whether you want to allow tracking. You can then decline the request.
    However, you can also prohibit this request in general under Settings -> Privacy -> Tracking and revoke permission once it has been given to individual apps.

    Nothing has changed in the app itself with regard to shared data. However, we now have to show this page (https://developer.apple.com/documentation/apptrackingtransparency).

    This is about movement data. These are anonymised. So we only see at what speed someone is driving on which road. From this we can determine traffic jams and IQ Routes statistics, which we can use to calculate how likely it is that avoiding a traffic jam on a certain route at a certain time is worthwhile.

    This data is then used again by our apps, PNDs, the MyDrive website.
