Ok, thanks for the answer......but does this give the right to Avast to sell users' data?
That question has been answered at least 100 time.
I know you can't let the topic go but, stop repeating or asking for old news.
If you have new information to share, we would all love to hear it.

With all due respect sir, you As a worker for avast should answer all the questions even if they were repeated, or send me link to the answer of the question.
Thank You.

It may not be illegal ( i am not a lawyer ) but they sure should tell you in clear text when you install it so you can decide if you want to use it or not

They did. That screenshot was taken when I did a new install of Avast Free on a new computer very recently.
I don't know when that screen was added.

Ok, I admit that I was only reading the title and thought that it wants data from my PC then I click on NO, Thanks. But I didn't read the rest of the part which is about jumpshot......ETC.
And I am happy that they shut down jumpshot.
Ok Sir, thank you.
And sorry for annoyance.
