To facilitate debugging and further development, OpenVINO™ asks its users for a permission to collect telemetry data. It will not be collected without an explicit consent on your part and will cover only OpenVINO™ usage information. It does not extend to any other Intel software, hardware, website usage, or other products.
Google Analytics is used for telemetry purposes. Refer to Google Analytics support to understand how the data is collected and processed.
Enable or disable Telemetry reporting¶
On the first run of an application that collects telemetry data, you will be prompted to opt in or out of telemetry collection with the following telemetry message:
Intel would like your permission to collect software performance and usage data for the purpose of improving Intel products and services. This data will be collected directly by Intel or through the use of Google Analytics. This data will be stored in countries where Intel or Google operate. You can opt-out at any time in the future by running 'opt_in_out --opt_in'. More Information is available at docs.openvino.ai. Please type 'Y' to give your consent or 'N' to decline.
Choose your preference by typing ‘Y’ to enable or ‘N’ to disable telemetry. Your choice will be confirmed by a corresponding disclaimer. If you do not reply to the telemetry message, your telemetry data will not be collected.
For the Neural Network Compression Framework (NNCF), which is not a command line application, the telemetry message will not display. Telemetry data will only be collected from NNCF if you have explicitly provided consent in another OpenVINO tool.
Changing consent decision¶
You can change your data collection decision with the following command lines:
opt_in_out –opt_in - enable telemetry
opt_in_out –opt_out - disable telemetry
