2. Very much doubt that the 'wireless' aspect has anything to do with it ...

Anyone using any particular 'app' to play/stream music should be prepared (and probably already agree to it when installing said app) for their listening habits to be uploaded somewhere and therefore non-private.

You don't think ITunes keeps track of, and tells Apple, what you're playing when you use it? Spotify/Google Play? Windows Groove?

You'd likely have to use something OLD like Winamp, and be listening to only music physically present on your PC ... to avoid something like this happening. That, or seek out an app that specifically says 'Private Listening Only' as they'd market it that way.
