We don't know what they collect in the privacy policy.

Not exactly. :)

Here it is interesting because it is an argument we see very often.

I agree with you that a too complex policy is not read. But there is a difference between give me a big giant blob of text and validating options step by step when progressively using the services. Here is a typical UX issue. :) The other reason why I'm doubtful about this "nobody will read" is that there is a shouting underline "We will not be able to do our business if people really knew" :) And that's telling. :)
