Usage metrics at Brave search enabled by default?

Why are the usage metrics for brave search enabled by default so the user has to opt-out?

This decision is in contradicting to the privacy claims of the Brave company, especially when every Privacy law says that for personal data collection the explicit user consent via opt-in is necessary.

This opt-out mechanism is just taking the intial decision and consent away from the user and does not really build trust towards Brave, sorry. I hope there will be improved.
