When we try to download Netbeans or Virtualbox from the Oracle/Sun site, our firewall warns us that some suite called EdgeSuite tries to obtain information from our machines. I don't know what information it is gathering, but I can't download any of them because our firewall categorizes its actions as a violation of privacy.
Is the firewall correct? Does Oracle gather information from your machine when you download Netbeans or Virtualbox? If yes, what information is gathered?
