Expressing it as a "freedom" does not make it clearer. I think it is better left as a trust: "The trust that the program will not report any detail of you activity to a remote site without explicit permission". Obviously, any program that violates that trust can be changed using freedom 1 (and distributed using freedom 3) without the annoyance. The trust you mention is like the community around software: not a freedom but something additional.
Perhaps as a right it works:
The right to keep your activity private without explicit, opt-in permission.
