According to a report from Majorgeeks.com, Nvidia telemetry components is indeed preset but it appears that this is a component specific for Geforce Experience, Nvidia Wireless Controller and Shadowplay component of the driver.

For those that are concerned about privacy-issues, luckily, there is a way to disable those telemetry options.
