    It's called 'negative concord' which doesn't exist in german language anymore (except some dialects).

    Hmmm...
    it seems that thare are no questions regarding this theme except grammatical discussion )
    I'm really surprised due to this big-bada-bum. What will happen if such "computer specialists" (like author of source publication) get to know how many information they gave to Internet companies like Facebook, Google, Microsoft ...
    nice joke! thanks to everybody ))

    Hi) How are you? Great post, but sadly you got confused and misunderstood some details.
    "Selecting “Don’t allow MountSpace to use my mount statistics” here doesn’t actually turn off MountSpace."
    Go to preferences and see for yourself. there are 2 checkboxes. one is for sending stat, second is for showing panel in main window. Its different things.
    "You can find already sent/received cached data in %AppData%\DAEMON Tools Lite\ImageInfoCache."
    It's only received data and nothing else
    As it's mentioned here there are 2 files which can be opened by any text editor and you can see for yourself what info is being collected.

    Artman,

    I posted more details but it appears the mods here edited my post. I will repeat them:

    Fact: Daemon Tools does not have a valid EULA. It's truncated and does not contain the privacy policy that MountSpace says is there during install.

    Fact: Regardless of the setting on the MountSpace dialog, data is transmitted. A ISO hash and IP address are transmitted to MountSpace. That means the ISO hash could be correlated to a user. As a user, I have no idea if they're storing/using this data because again -- the privacy policy does not exist.

    @WithinRafael
    If the MountSpace bar and the anonymous statistics are disabled, then nothing at all gets sent to MountSpace.
    Make something idiot proof, but then they just make a better idiot

    Yes, that's correct -- a user will have to know to turn off the panel as well. And we're still unsure what MountSpace does with my IP/ISO hash. This should all be documented in the privacy policy, not in the forums
