Due to the way the application is built, a entirely seperate copy of
the application would have to be set up, and it would administer the
same data.

The privacy policy for KDE Identity is summarised as such here -
In terms of user data, it is never shared with outside organisations.
The only time information is shared outside of Identity itself is when
you login to applications such as, then your name,
username and email address are provided.

Implementing such a checkbox for further privacy is not feasible (due
to the fact that accounts can never be deleted and your details will
never be shared assuming you never login anywhere again)
