By using this extension your browser may send the URL of pages you are currently visiting to the UP library’s catalog server. Such information is sent only if you are actively using the extension; it is never sent automatically. If you wish to avoid this you must turn off the referrer URL by setting network.http.sendRefererHeader to 0 in your Firefox preferences (note that this may cause some web sites that require referrer information to not work correctly).
