Notice concerning reporting and privacy

This software is part of an exciting, ongoing research project. To put bread on our tables, we need to publish the results of our work, meaning that we need to collect some data to prove that what we are doing is working. The following paragraph describes what we collect and how we will use it. IN NO WAY CAN THE INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT FROM YOUR AZUREUS CLIENT BE TRACED TO A PARTICULAR DOWNLOAD ACTIVITY AND WE DO NOT COLLECT ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION.

Specifically, we collect IP addresses, information about your network performance and network views, and information about your download performance. The IP address can possibly be traced to your computer; however we collect absolutely no information that can identify precisely what you are downloading. We use the data to identify opportunities for improving download performance and to validate our research ideas. Our database of IP addreses, network views and download performance may be made available to other researchers. We may modify the information that we collect in the future; however, any you will be prompted to agree to any new terms before they take effect.

Of course, you can disable data collection from the Preferences menu, but please consider leaving the feature enabled so that we can make sure our system works and continue to improve your BitTorrent experience.
