Tableau products send two categories of Usage Data to Tableau. See the information below on these categories, and how you can manage them.
Product Usage Data
Product Usage Data includes data about how customers are using our products, so we can understand how certain features are working, and so we can improve them in the future. If you prefer not to send Product Usage Data back to Tableau, you can opt-out during installation, at run time (requires restart), or in an organization-wide deployment:
Basic Product Data
Basic Product Data is information that Tableau needs to make your products run and to provide timely security updates to you. If your organization does not want to send Basic Product Data back to Tableau, you can block this at the machine or organizational level:
All Product Data is collected and handled according to the Tableau Privacy Statement.
