For instance, you download a pirated EA game, they will find out, and could very well get into contact with you about it.
No they said they wouldn't share "personally identifiable information" with anyone. Meaning they will share the information they gather, just not information that they deem to be "personally identifiable information". Part of the information they gather is your IP Address. It could be seen that an IP Address doesn't "personally identify" anyone. But when this information is combined with other sources, you can find a lot of someone's "personally identifiable information".
I don't trust EA, or any other corporation for that matter, with my information. It is absolutely none of their business.

No, you are obviously not being helpful. You are trying to be a smart ass, and looking rather foolish as a result. There have been some genuine solutions to block EA gathering information posted in this thread. Yet you claim your childish response is the only way. Maybe if you took the time to read the thread, you would realise this. I mean come on its only two pages.
