If your company participates in the customer experience improvement program, VMware collects data from certain Horizon Client fields. Fields containing sensitive information are made anonymous.
VMware collects data on the clients to prioritize hardware and software compatibility. If your company's administrator has opted to participate in the customer experience improvement program, VMware collects anonymous data about your deployment in order to improve VMware's response to customer requirements. No data that identifies your organization is collected. Horizon Client information is sent first to Connection Server and then on to VMware, along with data from Connection Server instances, desktop pools, and remote desktops.
Although the information is encrypted while in transit to Connection Server, the information on the client system is logged unencrypted in a user-specific directory. The logs do not contain any personally identifiable information.
The administrator who installs Connection Server can select whether to participate in the VMware customer experience improvement program while running the Connection Server installation wizard, or an administrator can set an option in View Administrator after the installation.
