    Why is it necessary to collect IP address?

    It's not necessary, it's just a side effect of communicating with a web server (there's no way around communicating the IP address, so it has to be communicated in the EULA).

    Do you really need to look at my temporary internet files and custom folders?
    What is enough?

    This is just to legally cover off what we're scanning - I'd think users would definitely want us to scan temporary internet files and custom folders: otherwise, we'd miss any temporarily downloaded files...

    Scan, yes. Store, no.

    We don't store any personally identifiable data - it's all just used for blocking files.

    So, you no longer store the IP Address? Great.

    Would you please let me know what info is actually stored according to the EULA as specified here?:

    We store information about the signatures of files and their behaviors for malware detection. We don't store personally identifiable data or anything which infringes upon your privacy.
