For some people minimum is still too much, although it is very obvious
that the data that is send has only statistical use. The moment you send
somebody something, they will see your IP. The use for this is to see e.g.
in what countries how much is downloaded.

That all said, it is very easy not to register by selecting 'later'.
Naturaly by testing the internetconnection, you already give away your IP
