One of the key initiatives of the Windows SDK is to find out more about our users’ experience with our product. We do this for one simple reason: we want to use your experience to help us improve what we release to you. We want to really know, in a detailed way, how you use the SDK. It’s great to hear from you through blog feedback, conversations at events and through the Forums, but in all those places we run into the same problem. Namely, how do we interpret that data? If one user is reporting a particular problem, we can be reasonably sure that they’re not the only one having it. But it’s hard to tell how many are affected by that issue.
· The user must always opt in to sending their data.
· No personally identifiable data may be collected.
· CEIP data may not be cross-referenced to derive personally identifiable data.
· CEIP may only collect data necessary to the understanding, development and support of an application and future versions of that application.
· Data may not be shared with third parties.
I’ll post about the SDK’s implementation of CEIP later in the week.
