It's more and more common to see computer applications asking you to allow them to send nonpersonalized data to their creators to "assist future improvement".
I would love to see in the comments who checks these boxes. Personally:

  • I send Valve data all the time because they send me interesting statistics back (thereby enlarging my ego)
  • I send Microsoft data in hopes that someday they will fix all these crash reports.
  • I send google data because I think they actually use it.
  • I hope dearly that the complete lack of software/hardware I have purchased from Adobe, Apple, and Symantec is telling them what I think of thier products.
