Working for a corporation doesn't make you a robot.

Quite often (but not always), particularly for sensitive issues, working for a corporation absolutely makes you a robot. Given the choice between having a viable career in the corporation or shutting up and going along, choosing the former means that you aren't really part of the corporation and choosing the latter makes you a robot.

This company is no different than AVG and Kaspersky when it comes to anti-virus services.

It's very different. With software from AVG or anyone else, you have a choice. If you object to their collection practices, you can simply not use their software. That's not really the case with Windows for most people. You're locked in, and you can't turn the collection off.
