Why should I uninstall Consumer Input Software?

The privacy filters used with versions of the software installed prior to February 1, 2010 may not have sufficiently prevented the transmission to Compete of certain personally identifiable and sensitive information such as information consumers communicated on secure web pages (e.g., https), including credit card numbers, financial account numbers, security codes and expiration dates, usernames, passwords and Social Security numbers.
Typical installation path: C:\Program Files\Consumer Input
Description from Compete Inc.
Consumer Input is a panel made up of people like you who want to express their opinions about the products and services that matter most to them. By participating in online research, our members have an opportunity to influence leading companies while earning cash rewards, gift cards, or entries into valuable sweepstakes. What makes the Consumer Input Panel unique is that we utilize a small piece of software that resides on your PC which anonymously records your Internet browsing behavior. In conjunction with traditional opinion and research surveys, Consumer Input uses proprietary software to anonymously record web browsing patterns. These patterns are merged with the patterns of thousands of Internet users and analyzed in aggregate to understand the trends that will influence major marketing decisions in a variety of industries. We will not license, publish, or sell any information collected from our panelists that can be tied to an individual user. In addition, the data collection software uses a proprietary rules engine to search through all URLs, before transmitting them to its database, to strip out any such personally identifiable information, thus ensuring your privacy. The privacy filters used with versions of the software installed prior to February 1, 2010 may not have sufficiently prevented the transmission to Compete of certain personally identifiable and sensitive information such as information consumers communicated on secure web pages (e.g., https), including credit card numbers, financial account numbers, security codes and expiration dates, usernames, passwords and Social Security numbers.
