Welcome, jakea. Congratulations on your new One.
Unwanted syncing can happen with a configuration error by the user either at the site or on the device. I'd check both (you say you've already checked the device.. be sure to hit all syncing apps/widget areas).
I'd even go so far as to see if it repeats after clearing all the data from those apps and rebooting. That'll probably take care of things as long as you are careful about your settings.
The HTC One is pretty new.. I hope we're not talking about a quality control bug in some of them.
