I like this:

Uncheck this box if you do not wish your Program Sponsor to receive your registration information

It is checked by default.  So if I leave it, I DO wish to share my registration info?  Or what?  I do not want to share so I UNCHECK the box.  Why not just say “Check if OK to share”?  As usual, leaving it alone means your info is shared.  Nice!
