I have removed this plugin after finding it adds tracking info to visitors’ browsers for a company called Media6degrees. My site visitors will assume I knew (or should have known) and am therefore complicit if / when they work out this behaviour is happening.
I don’t object to plugin developers getting revenue for providing a free plugin by this method. I do object to having to find this out for myself, rather than being told upfront when installing, and so making a conscious choice.
