    Hello Maplers,

    In the next client update, we are going to add ways for us to collect anonymous information about your system. We do this to debug problems, for statistics reasons (ex: how many still use Windows Vista for example), and for troubleshooting. This will be a setting in the Legends.ini called 'SendAnonymousUsageData' which you can put to false to disable on the next client update. In the current client, this is NOT enabled.

    Here's the full discloser about that:

    -----------

    Once again, if you feel uncomfortable about this, in the next client update you can disable that if you wish in the Legends.ini and putting SendAnonymousUsageData to false. If however, you want to help us making our statistics as accurate as possible, as well as helping us debugging and troubleshooting, please leave it on.

    We hope this is enough transparency about this so users are not caught off-guard.

    Thanks!

    It's possible to do this with ANY program you install on your computer, and private Maplestory servers rely on trust between staffs and players for this exact reason.

    We did not have to disclose this if we were to be malicious. We were fully aware this would raise red flags to some players even though we're not collecting sensitive information. If we were to abuse this, we would've just stayed silent to not raise any red flags at all.

    Like Kimmy said, it's up to you to trust. We've done everything to be transparent with our Privacy Policy on our Terms of Service and this post.

    Thanks for being transparent. I don't see anything personally identifiable in that list. If it helps the game out, I'm in!

    thank you for listing what kind of data you are collecting! it’s completely understandable to want user hardware / software statistics as game devs.

    It's gonna be harder to trust which data is collected since the prescence of an on/off switch couldn't be trusted.
