After watching southpark and reading about other people's experiences with the hidden stuff in EULA's I was interested to read my EA downloaded update's eula.
This one is called "Origins" and I had noticed some hub-bub around the internet about it so I read it and found this part interesting. I will not be agreeing to install it and now wonder how many other programs do this as well...perhaps I am mis-interpreting it, but it seems as if the company has full access to see what I do on my computer at all times...
----You agree that EA may collect, use, store and transmit technical and related information that identifies your computer (including the Internet Protocol Address), operating system, Application usage (including but not limited to successful installation and/or removal), software, software usage and peripheral hardware, that may be gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of software updates, dynamically served content, product support and other services to you, including online services. EA may also use this information combined with personal information for marketing purposes and to improve our products and services. We may also share that data with our third party service providers in a form that does not personally identify you. IF YOU DO NOT WANT EA TO COLLECT, USE, STORE, TRANSMIT OR DISPLAY THE DATA DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION, PLEASE DO NOT INSTALL OR USE THE APPLICATION.
I would like to point out the part about collecting, storing, information regarding your Application usage, software usage and others. Also, the part about how they share my information with a 3rd party, (though my name won't be included).
Am I to understand that they will monitor my computer and see what games I play? How often I play them? How my computer runs them? And what I install/uninstall?
