File Reputation: The new AVG client will check with our cloud service and report the prevalence of certain files on users’ computers. We’ll then use this information to improve our product’s detection capabilities (heuristics, behavioural detection). No personal information is ever collected, and customers must opt into our product improvement program in order for us to access their data.
