Cam Software Leeching Data?

So I've been doing some research on AIO's and came across multiple posts about the cam software for NZXT leeching lots of data. Anyone know exactly what kind of information they collect because I've read some disturbing things about how much data seems to be taken.

So far I've been avoiding NZXT just for that reason but would love to eventually get an AIO from them because they look so perrtty.

Thanks
