Make analytics opt-in, or at least give users a way to disable it

I'm using Fiddler v4.6.20173.38786 (Built: Friday, September 15, 2017). In the ScriptEditor directory is EQATEC.Analytics.Monitor.dll which from what I understand can track movements and send analytics back to Telerik. That should be an opt-in feature. Please at least give us a way to disable the analytics. I tried removing the DLL but Fiddler Script Editor crashes without it. For now I have blocked Fiddler Script Editor from the internet since it was trying to access the internet when I would start it. Is Fiddler tracking me without my consent?

    At a minimum, the installer EULA should be updated.
