Last updated: July 2010

Microsoft is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Statement applies to the data collected by Microsoft through the "Windows Server Solutions Log
Collector Preview" application ("Application"). The Application consists of a command-line utility that users can manually run on the computer that is joined to a Windows Server Solutions server (e.g., Windows Server Code Named “Aurora,” or "Vail").
The tool transmits the troubleshooting information files that are gathered from the Windows computer that is joined to a Windows Server Solutions server or from a Windows Server Solutions server to Microsoft. The Application does not send any data to
Microsoft automatically. The Application sends the troubleshooting information to Microsoft server only if you choose to do so by running the Application.
In order to send troubleshooting information from your networked computer, you need to run the Application on that computer. In order to send troubleshooting
information from your server, the Application should be run from your server. This Privacy Statement does not apply to data collected through other online or offline Microsoft sites, products, or services. This Privacy Statement does not apply to Windows Server
Code Name Aurora, or Windows Server Code Name Vail. These pre-release servers have their own Privacy Statements as follows:
Windows Server Code Named Aurora Privacy Statement can be found here

service, including a full privacy statement please see the Microsoft
