Unbelievable arrogance.

Just as Europe tries to protect users against rampant data theft with the introduction of the GDPR laws, Zenimax in their arrogance get caught patching in spyware. Of course it was just for research, and of course it was an accident. Easy to make such a mistake when you are a professional software developer... a good job someone found it, otherwise they might never have been caught, sorry meant they might never have realised. How come such a respected IP has fallen so low. Spyware infested console kiddie garbage.

    Unbelievable we still have kids crying about what platform somebody plays a video game on.  Toxic kids like the OP are what is wrong with video game forums and in game chat.

    I do not agree with the software and reasons to do it but what I find interesting is that a lot of people complaining act like this kind of thing is isolated to games or ZOS. It's not. Many companies, especially the largest ones like Google and Amazon, base their entire existence on datamining. 

    Like I said I do not agree with it and I do believe ZOS should have been forthcoming with the information, but I do not believe outrage should be limited to gaming companies. If this kind of thing upsets you I recommend never using Google or Amazon ever again.
