    Does EULA open my PC to anyone who pays Adobe?

    Unit_42

      Just Read this part in the free Reader EULA

      Party who pay Adobe for permission can remotely access data on my PC

      because of this EULA's permission & Adobe will not be resposible for

      what they do.

       

      When you use the Software to open a PDF file that has been enabled to display ads through registration with the Ads for Adobe PDF service, your computer may connect to a website operated by Adobe, an advertiser, or other third party. Your Internet Protocol (IP) address is sent when this happens. The party hosting the site may use technology to send (or “serve”) advertising or other electronic content that appears in or near the opened file. The website operator may also use JavaScript, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies to increase and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and to personalize advertising content. Your communication with Adobe websites is governed by the Adobe Online Privacy Policy found at http://www.adobe.com/go/privacy . Adobe may not have access to or control over features that a third party may use

       

      Does the part "communication with Adobe websites is governed" also mean Third Party websites ?

       

      Could this agreement be interpreted as giving third partys permission to run Java (and other technologies) via/through Adobe Software which is not from an Adobe Website & so is not governed by the privacy policy & Adobe have no access or control over the code being run and therefore are not responsible.

       

      Can someone please definitively clarify
