about_ceip

VMware's Customer Experience Improvement Program ("CEIP") provides VMware with information that enables VMware to improve its products and services and to fix problems. When you choose to participate in CEIP, VMware will collect technical information listed below about your use of the VMware products and services in CEIP reports on a regular basis. This information does not personally identify you.

I. Configuration Data - Data about how you have configured VMware products and services and related environment information. Examples of Configuration Data include version information for VMware products, product environment information, and product configuration settings. Configuration Data may include obfuscated versions of your device IDs and MAC and Internet Protocol addresses.
II. Feature Usage Data - Data about how you use VMware products and services. Examples of Feature Usage Data include details about which product features you use and metrics of user interface activity.
III. Performance Data - Data about the performance of VMware products and services. Examples of Performance Data include metrics of the performance and scale of VMware products and services, response times for user interfaces, and details about your API calls.

VMware collects the above CEIP reporting information in connection with a unique CEIP instance identifier that is stored on your device and which does not personally identify you. This identifier enables VMware to distinguish one report from another.

You can join or leave the program at any time by executing: Set-PowerCLIConfiguration -Scope User -ParticipateInCEIP $true or $false
