Sorry direct links not allowed.

Quite interesting, thanks.

Kind regards, REBOL. :slight_smile:

Since COMODO (again, as almost always… 88) ) was not included in this “privacy related” survey, may I please be allowed to pass on the following questions to COMODO directly?

Product information

Is the product version and license information transmitted?

Is a unique idenfication number transmitted?

Are statistics for product usage transmitted?

Machine information

Is the version of the operating system transmitted?

Is the Computer name transmitted?

Is information (e.g. version numbers, etc.) about third party applications transmitted?

Is information about the hardware (RAM, CPU, …) transmitted?

Is information about running processes transitted?

Is the local IP address transmitted?

Are event- or errorlogs of the operating system transmitted?

Is the display resolution transmitted?

Personal information

Are visited URLs (malicious and non-malicious URLs) transmitted?

Is the Referer (previous page with link to malware-hosting site) transmitted?

Is the country / region of the settings of the operating system transmitted?

Is the language of the operating system transmitted?

Is the windows username transmitted?

File related information (clean and malicious)

Are hashes of files (or hashes of parts of files) transmitted?

Is the detection name (of malware detections) transmitted?

Is the name and path of files transmitted?

If “suspicious” files are transmitted: Are executable files transmitted?

If “suspicious” files are transmitted: Are non-executable files (e.g. documents) transmitted?

Can user opt out of sending files?

When potential malware collects and sends user data, is a sample of the collected data transmitted?

General

Do you make use of silent detections (e.g. for FP mitigation of new algorithms)?

Are special updates delivered to users with specific IDs?

In which jurisdiction is the data stored (EU, USA, worldwide/random, etc)?

Could anyone at COMODO please answer ALL those questions? If yes: :-TU
If all are being answered, I promise to create a pdf file just as colourful as the above linked one. :wink:

Maybe such a thing can be of help towards further “Creating Trust Online®”?. :a0

Kind regards, REBOL. :slight_smile:

Would be interested too. I mean i guess it would be of interest for everyone and i believe there are a few questions that aren’t covered by any EULA.
