This policy setting controls whether users can participate in the Microsoft Office Customer Experience Improvement Program to help improve Microsoft Office. When users choose to participate in the Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP), Office 2007 applications automatically send information to Microsoft about how the applications are used. This information is combined with other CEIP data to help Microsoft solve problems and to improve the products and features customers use most often. This feature does not collect users' names, addresses, or any other identifying information except the IP address that is used to send the data.
If you enable this policy setting, users have the opportunity to opt into participation in the CEIP the first time they run an Office application. If your organization has policies that govern the use of external resources such as the CEIP, allowing users to opt in to the program might cause them to violate these policies.
If you disable this policy setting, Office 2007 users cannot participate in the Customer Experience Improvement Program.
If you do not configure this policy setting, the behavior is the equivalent of setting the policy to "Enabled".
