I allow myself a personal comment.

A good approach would be to stop collecting so much information about the user and send it to Google Analytics without asking.  :P0l

"In terms of data protection law, Google Analytics is problematic and controversial. Google can use this analysis tool to create a comprehensive user profile of visitors to a website. If a log-on Google service is used by visitors, this user profile can also be assigned to specific persons. Another problem is the storage of data in the US, which give privacy a lower priority than European countries."

Of course, this also applies to information captured by applications and passed on to Google Analytics.

Due to Google's new privacy policy regarding the merging of the data of the various services , sites and software that use Google Analytics are at increased risk for the user's right to informational self-determination

Furthermore, would be classified as problematic:

- Contains ability to retrieve keyboard strokes
- Implements anti-virtualization techniques against vmware, virtual box, qemu
- Tries to obtain the highest possible privilege level without UAC dialog
- Installs itself for autorun at Windows startup
- Queries sensitive IE security settings
- Queries the internet cache settings
- Modifies Software Policy settings
- Modifies System Certificates
- Modifies Proxy settings
- Steals private information from local Internet browsers
- ......
