It associates to CD key (well, a hashed version of it), not your
username, IP address, or other personal information. We figure that
every time you go to a webpage, your browser reports your OS and no one
seems to care, so this shouldn't be a big deal.

Online stats, which are disabled by default, can track a lot more
(kills, deaths, time spent playing, where you played, etc), but you have
to opt into this explicitly by setting up a username/password for the
stats tracker. Some people like being part of that, some don't, so it's
something you have to go out of your way to be a part of.

For what it's worth, TuxGames DOES has the DVD version.
