Chapter 5. Customer privacy

Various Microsoft products have a feature that reports usage statistics, analytics, and various other metrics to Microsoft over the network. Microsoft calls this Telemetry. Red Hat is disabling telemetry because we do not recommend sending customer data to anyone without explicit permission.

Customers can enable telemetry by setting the environment variable DOTNET_CLI_TELEMETRY_OPTOUT to 0. See .NET Core Tools Telemetry collection for more information.
