Default [Q] Privacy ROM?

Hi there!

I've been looking around but didn't find any:
I have an LG G2 and I'd like it to be more privacy-aware / invisible.

I know many apps gather a lot of data. That's why I don't install those...
I barely play games on my phone, don't install apps that require permissions etc..

But I'm pretty sure Google and LG slipped a ton of analytics, junk and spy-crap into the stock ROM.

Is it reasonable to look for a Privacy ROM? If so, I'd have to put my trust into some 'random'-developer... Or should I just compose my own from scratch? (If so: where can I find the most mint/unbloated packet to start with?)

(Or should I just get me a legendary Nokia 3310?)

Thanks in advance!

Well you can make one yourself and you should start with stock just remove bloat but there are other options I use an xposed module called app settings and it allows you to decide what an app has access to (keeping in mind that you can't disable something that an app needs to work)
