3. AUTOMATIC INTERNET-BASED SERVICES.
The Software features described below are enabled by
default to connect via the Internet to Microsoft
computer systems automatically, without separate
notice to you. You consent to the operation
of these features, unless you choose to switch
them off or not use them. Microsoft does not
obtain personally identifiable information
through any of these features.
information about these features, please see
your Software documentation or the Microsoft
online support site.
a. Windows Update Features.
Under the Software's default configuration, if you connect
a device to your Computer and the correct device driver is
not available on your Computer, then Windows Update
features on your Computer (including Device Manager
and the Plug & Play CDM Module) automatically attempt
to check Microsoft computer systems via the Internet
for the correct device driver. Having this happen
automatically makes Plug-and-Play installation of
new hardware a better experience for customers.
You may switch off Windows Update's automatic driver
b. Web Content Features.
Under the Software's default configuration, if you are
connected to the Internet, several features of the Software
are enabled by default to retrieve content from Microsoft
computer systems and display it to you. When you activate
such a feature, it uses standard Internet protocols, which
transmit the type of operating system, browser and language
code of your Computer to the Microsoft computer system so
that the content can be viewed properly from your Computer.
These features only operate when you activate them, and
you may choose to switch them off or not use them.
An example of this feature is Appshelp.
c. Digital Certificates.
Use of certificates based on the X.509 standard is an
important security feature of the Software. Certain
functions of the X.509 implementation (for example,
certificate revocation checking and certificate path
building) connect via the Internet to computer systems
belonging to Microsoft and other digital certificate
authorities to check the validity of digital certificates
that you receive from third parties during certain
Internet-based operations (for example, communications
secured with SSL or IPsec, mail secured with S/MIME, and
smartcard authentication). In accordance with the X.509
standard, the Software automatically retrieves user
certificates and certificate revocation lists when you
attempt to access certificate protected content.
Additionally, the Software's Auto Root Update feature will
occasionally update the list of trusted certificate
authorities. Auto Root Update is an optional feature; you
can uninstall it if you do not desire it to function. The
other security operations based on the X.509 standard can
be prevented from operating by blocking Computer Internet
d. Windows Media Digital Rights Management.
Content providers are using the digital rights management
technology for Windows Media contained in this Software
("WM-DRM") to protect the integrity of their content
("Secure Content") so that their intellectual property,
including copyright, in such content is not misappropriated.
Portions of this Software and third party applications such
as media players use WM-DRM to play Secure Content
("WM-DRM Software"). If the WM-DRM Software's security
has been compromised, owners of Secure Content ("Secure
Content Owners") may request that Microsoft revoke
the WM-DRM Software's right to copy, display and/or
play Secure Content. Revocation does not alter the
WM-DRM Software's ability to play unprotected content.
A list of revoked WM-DRM Software is sent to your
computer whenever you download a license for Secure
Content from the Internet. Microsoft may, in
conjunction with such license, also download
revocation lists onto your computer on behalf of
Secure Content Owners. Secure Content Owners
may also require you to upgrade some of the WM-DRM
components in this Software ("WM-DRM Upgrades") before
accessing their content. When you attempt to play
such content, WM-DRM Software built by Microsoft
will notify you that a WM-DRM Upgrade is required
and then ask for your consent before the WM-DRM
Upgrade is downloaded. WM-DRM Software built
by third parties may do the same. If you decline
the upgrade, you will not be able to access content
that requires the WM-DRM Upgrade; however, you will
still be able to access unprotected content and
Secure Content that does not require the upgrade.
WM-DRM features that access the Internet, such
as acquiring new licenses and/or performing a
required WM-DRM Upgrade, can be switched off. When
these features are switched off, you will still be able
to play Secure Content if you have a valid license for
such content already stored on your computer.
e. Windows Media Player.
Some features of Windows Media Player automatically
contact Microsoft computer systems if you use
Windows Media Player or specific features of it:
features that (A) check for new codecs if your
Computer does not have the correct ones for content
you attempt to play (this feature may be switched
off), and (B) check for new versions of Windows
Media Player (this feature will operate only
when you are using Windows Media Player).
