Nice post! Everyone remember that data is the plural form of datum.

Although –data- is a word that is a plural almost 90 percent of the times, still the word can be singular when it is used as a mass noun meaning information. For example, it is perfectly legitimate to say that ‘the data given in this premise of argument is dubious’. All the same, it has to be taken as a plural word in this context.
But we also have to look at the correlative conjunction //ism of either …. or,
Per these two norms of SV agreement and //ism, Only C befits the choice

IMO C

Also want to mention, between A and C it was a tough choice, but there is a very subtle difference in meaning between: "either you......or" - (which finally leads to parallelism issue.) and "you either....or" - thus C is better
