Agreed to Origin/BF3 EULA? EA may collect and share your data!

It’s already known that Origin will be required to play Battlefield 3 on the PC, and at first, it seemed like just another digital download service, however, some might find it disturbing that, according to the Origin EULA, EA collects information about your computer, the software installed on it, its hardware, not only to “improve the service”, but they can also pass on this data to third parties, as the…
