Could you expand on the privacy concerns with Traffic Light?

I've been trying to decide between Bitdefender Traffic Light, Emsisoft Browser Security, and Malwarebytes Browser Guard.
as @blackice said in the above reply they seems they updated their privacy policy and asked for new permissions also in google chrome (some of it related to communicating to their server and keeping logs _so i removed it
