The extension doesn't track your browsing history, and it doesn't send any content from any page you visit to our servers, with one exception: when a page has a DOI (a short identifier used by scholarly articles), we send that DOI to our server (using an encrypted HTTPS connection) to find any free versions available. We will log requests to our servers (which include the DOI and the IP address the request came from) in order to monitor and improve service. We also use Google Analytics in order to track active installations.
