Privacy Guard questions


I have been drilling down into the e/OS Android settings and have discovered Privacy Guard and have a few queries for the experts.

If the icon on the right is black, is it off or on? (Obviously blue will be the opposite?).

Do I really only need to worry about apps that have internet connections? If the app cant communicate “Home”, then I don’t need to worry about what its up to, do I? Could it share data with a web connected app?

Also, is there a glossary for the terms anywhere? Obviously things like vibrate are clear and unambiguous, but some terms could mean various things, such as modify settings, what could that possibly change, settings in the app, other apps, or change phone settings.
