7 From the FAQ on the Microsoft site. Q: Does the MAP Toolkit send any data about my environment to Microsoft? A: By default, no data about your environment is uploaded to Microsoft or anyone else by the MAP Toolkit. Previous versions of the tool do have a capability to download updated content and device driver compatibility information from Microsoft, however this is an optional feature and can be disabled on the first page of the Setup wizard or from the Tools -> Options menu within those versions of the product itself. The only data that Microsoft receives when someone updates their device compatibility information is the IP address of the computer (or intervening firewall) that requested the updates, along with standard HTTP header information, such as the user agent string, etc. Additionally, you may choose to share certain information with Microsoft to aid in the improvement of MAP Toolkit features, via the Customer Experience Improvement Program. The Customer Experience Improvement Program (“CEIP”) collects basic information about your hardware configuration and how you use our software and services in order to identify trends and usage patterns. CEIP also collects the type and number of errors you encounter, software and hardware performance, and the speed of services. We will not collect your name, address, or other contact information. The privacy policy for the MAP Toolkit is available here:
