Indeed I thought you were thinking about submitting some data to the 
server, such as the current version of DrScheme installed. If DrScheme 
only downloads the current version number then I personally have no 
privacy concerns at all.

When browsing the web the browser may contact various servers in 
addition to the one given by URL, and it would be rather annoying if it 
would ask me for permission each time it accesses content on other 

For people with strong privacy concerns I recommend Little Snitch on OS 
X, in combination with a decent set of rules.

Best regards,
