“AT NO TIME WHATSOEVER does the Viewpoint Media Player or the Viewpoint Manager collect ANY personal data about you or your usage patterns, nor do we install third-party software or access information on your hard drive. The auto-update process happens totally anonymously and happens solely to ensure that your player is up-to-date. Since we do not collect personal data, there is no way – as in the case of “spyware” – to “traffic” or sell your personal information. We as a company find spy ware to be reprehensible and we are committed to protecting the privacy of all of our users.”
Conclusion: VIEWPOINT IS A LEGITIMATE APPLICATION.
