AVG’s new privacy policy reveals it can collect and sell your browsing history

71FqBEAow8L._SL1500_

Anti-virus firm AVG has come up with a new privacy policy that clearly claims the anti-virus program can collect your browsing data and then sell it to advertisers.

The ‘transparent’ new privacy policy mentions that it ‘collects non-personal data to make money from our free offerings so we can keep them free’. The collected data includes your browsing and search history (including meta data), ISP or mobile network used to connect to AVG products, applications installed on your device and how you use them.

However, AVG also says that it will not sell any data that may help identify you and will anonymize any such data. In fact, AVG has been collecting user data in the past as well and did mention the same in its privacy policies, just not as ‘clearly’ as it is doing now.

This new privacy policy will come into effect on October 15.
