AVG can sell your browsing history to third parties

Reading the details in the links above, AVG are giving users the ability to opt-out of the data sharing. If you look closely at a lot of other common software we install, similar data gathering measures are already being utilised by the developers. A question I ask myself is, how many are actually selling data on without their members knowing!


Edit: Another thought sprang to mind. I have never trusted sharing of data to affiliates who in turn share it with other affiliates who very well may sell this on! What protection do you have once your data has been shared outside of those you initially made any form of agreement with! The affiliates will not be bound by the same terms between you and the company who first gets your data!

There is no doubt it keeps getting worse and worse and difficult to stop but for a company that is supposed to be about "security" it makes it even harder to trust in them from my point of view. If that's your financial model then I'm sorry I don't want anything to do with you. Where do they draw the line?
