Sense attempts at "tracking": not happy

Received an email from sense about a newly discovered device, offering a button to click to see it.

As it so happens I have received these before, but since a while now I have installed and configured a new firewall which also blocks attempts at DNS lookups for sites known to be involved in user tracking, adware and malware. Here is what I was presented with when I clicked the link:

Visible here is that the click attempts to go through mandrillapp.com, which essentially click tracking through emails sent with mail chimp. Since this email is not a marketing or sales email, I am not too appreciative of sense trying to track my clicks… What happens with my tracking data?

If you wish to visit without tracking, copy the link and delete the portion after “//” up to and including the “/” before home.sense.com. Or just open the phone app.

If you don’t have these kinds of safeguards, be aware this is happening. If you don’t like it, let sense know.
