What exactly does this option mean? I'm pretty sure it doesn't simply "open a web page". What is the default? Do I have to enable or to disable data collection?
I don't exactly know. From what I understand/remember it collects data about game performance in regards to your PC specifics (hardware and such). It should'nt collect anything else. Usually if you hover over that option, if a game has analytics, there is a description.
I don't remember what the default is/was for Dead in Vinland.
[Personal sidenote/potentially unwanted extra information: I always uncheck the box for Analytics, if a game has it and it isn't unchecked already. (I don't know about these technical things. So it's kind of a reflex. I don't like not personally being able to verify, that it does only what it states it's doing, nothing "extra".)]
