If a Horizon administrator has opted to participate in the customer experience improvement program, and data sharing is enabled on the client system, VMware collects data about the client system.
VMware collects data about client systems to prioritize hardware and software compatibility. If your Horizon administrator has opted to participate in the customer experience improvement program, VMware collects anonymous data about your deployment to respond better to customer requirements. VMware does not collect data that identifies your organization. Horizon Client information is sent first to the Connection Server instance and then to VMware, along with data about Connection Server, desktop pools, and remote desktops.
The information is encrypted when it is in transit to the Connection Server instance. The information on the client system is logged unencrypted in a user-specific directory. The logs do not contain personally identifiable information.
A Horizon administrator can select whether to participate in the VMware customer experience improvement program when installing Connection Server or by setting an option in Horizon Console after the installation.
