    An excerpt from help files:

    The ThreatSense.Net Early Warning System has a single purpose - to improve the protection that we can offer you, our customer. The best way to ensure that we see new threats as soon as they appear is to "link" to as many of our customers as possible and use them as our Threat Scouts. There are two options:

    You can decide not to enable the ThreatSense.Net Early Warning System. You won't lose any functionality in the software, and you'll still get the best protection that we can offer.
    You can enable Early Warning System to submit anonymous information about new threats, and where the new threatening code is contained in a file, the whole file can be sent to Eset for detailed analysis. Studying these threats will help Eset update its threat detection capabilities. The ThreatSense.Net Early Warning System will collect information about your computer related to newly detected threats, which may include a sample or copy of the file in which the threat appeared, the path to that file, its filename, information about the date and time, the process by which the threat appeared on your computer and information about your computer's operating system. Some of this information may include personal information about the user of the computer, for instance usernames in the path etc. An example of the file information submitted is available here.
