@luceric: Thanks for the link. It was not really the question whether this is backed up by a keeping all options open legal document and a call center. It's more that not many are aware of what it means in practice. Would you feel comfortable if I install tracking software on your machine? Creepy, isn't it?
my point was that you can ask them what data is logged, and if you can opt out. (it seems to be an error that it's in the downloadable help, however)
You suggested that it was "technically possible" that Autodesk accesses your web history or tracked out across site.. I believe this is false, but they should be able to answer that officially. You can see what they reply. Autodesk has strict customer data privacy rules and all employee have required training every year about these issues. Even things like the automatic customer information in crash report is encrypted and not accessible to regular employees.
