Me neither. So I have those under my own control on a NextCloud server, which is hosted for free for small amounts of data and is in the EU. (It's like Dropbox, but DIY and non-commercal.)

But Google will collect your contacts, if you use Gmail or Android. I don't know about Microsoft and Apple.

Thunderbird can share Nextcloud and GMail contacts via the addons I mentioned. But I know nothing about Microsoft's email services.
