Avast Data Privacy Day

Oh the irony of Avast doing a Data Privacy Day! I just came back to say, we have not forgotten. Your reputation is damaged forever.

I guess there were a popup after every install that let you know about what type of data is collected. I would always disable all data collection except the Community IQ. So If that means Avast is not collecting my personal data right now.
