We would like to add a telemetry probe (likely keyed scalar) that would give us insight about how many times and what kind of simulation (simulation type) the users run.

Data Review Request

# Data Review Form

1) Is there or will there be **documentation** that describes the schema for the ultimate data set in a public, complete, and accurate way?

This will be documented in the [probe dictionary](

2) Is there a control mechanism that allows the user to turn the data collection on and off?

Yes, this can be turned off by disabling Telemetry in the Firefox Preferences.

3) If the request is for permanent data collection, is there someone who will monitor the data over time?

The request is not for permanent data collection.

4) Using the **[category system of data types](** on the Mozilla wiki, what collection type of data do the requested measurements fall under?

Category 2: Interaction data

5) Is the data collection request for default-on or default-off?


6) Does the instrumentation include the addition of **any *new* identifiers** (whether anonymous or otherwise; e.g., username, random IDs, etc.  See the appendix for more details)?


7) Is the data collection covered by the existing Firefox privacy notice?


8) Does there need to be a check-in in the future to determine whether to renew the data? 

Yes, there should be check-in with :mislam once release Firefox gets to version 73.

9) Does the data collection use a third-party collection tool?
