Blood group, DNA, bank account number and password, Mothers maiden name, favourite pets name,......  I am certain that option links to a very long and very boring document that explains exactly the usage metrics that are gathered. If you are the sort of person that would take the time to read such a document then you probably the sort of person that would need to say no thanks when asked  out the option.

Actually the more interesting question is whether Intel will respond?  

I have no great problem giving them the information, given the number of installations, the data set will be huge, which limits how useful it is.

The install page that asks your permission has quite a bit of detail on what is collected, and there is a link for more information.
