HubSpot Wordpress plugin requires turning off cross-site tracking privacy

The HubSpot Wordpress plugin is requiring me to turn off cross-site tracking privacy in Safari.

 

I am very concerned about having to turn off privacy settings when using a plugin.  I've never encountered this from any other plugin.

 

First of all it is annoying.  I now have to turn off cross site tracking when I am administering my client's website.

 

Second of all it is insulting that HubSpot want to track my admin activity.

 

Thirdly, this could be leavning my client and thier users' data vulnerable to tracking.  If users want to shut this down, they can.  It does not affect the usability of the website.  It could lead to unauthorized access to administrators' browsing habits.

 

If this is because of how it is programmed, then HubSpot needs new programmers.  Any functionality they are relying on through cross-site trackers can be achieved another way.

 

HubSpot, please remove this requirement and program the plugin with privacy in mind.
