The Online Software Inspector collects unique text strings and data about executable files and installed applications on your system, including hostname and langroup, Microsoft KB numbers, and the values from the registry keys "Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion" and "System\CurrentControlSet\Control\ProductOptions". This data is analysed by the Secunia File Signature engine (si.secunia.com) to determine the exact applications installed on your system. No other data is collected from your system.
This can in turn be used to provide you with a detailed report about the specific missing security related updates on your system.
The data is generic, standardised, and originates from installed programs on your computer.
Secunia will not share or sell specific data about individuals with any third parties. Only aggregate statistical which can't be related directly to any individuals will be published and shared with third parties.
