How often do you read Privacy policies of web services/apps, or End user license agreements (EULA) ?
If your answer is never, that’s okay, even I don’t pay attention to those in most cases.
That’s a fancy way of saying, we don’t sell your personally identifiable information, or is it? The company states that it uses the so-called non-personal data, This includes not just the data you provide to it willingly, but also your browsing habits, searches etc, which are tracked by the means of browser cookies.
Is this the price users have to pay for using a free antivirus ? Forfeiting the user data, the privacy of our information? And the fact that the company makes money off of it is just unacceptable. Nobody likes to have their data profiles gathered by someone, as it could may be misused, if it falls in to the wrong hands, even if the data collected is anonymized to protect the user.
