It does not make you run proprietary software, AFAIK.  Instead it makes
you contact a remote computer that provides a service over which you
don't have any control.  Whether that computer runs proprietary or Free
software is anyone's guess but doesn't directly impact you.

I wouldn't recommend the use of such proprietary services, indeed.
