I think you're correct. The manual links to:

https://www.toyota.com/privacyvts/im...017-Oct-18.pdf

You have 15 days from purchase to opt out, otherwise you have, defacto, signed the agreement. This gathers a boatload of information, it's like a plane's blackbox. It appears there is more in this data harvesting for Toyota to obtain feedback, and possibly law enforcement, than something useful to the driver excepting the case of a serious accident where no one else functional was around and you couldn't use your cell phone but still had a finger to reach the SOS button. I guess I have 9 more days to weigh this.
