In non-techie terms:
The majority of advertising-supported applications might not only bother you with ads that will take you to third party websites, but also might do other activities behind your back, for instance, record such non-personally identifiable data as your browsing history, your search queries, and the content that you access. It is not an illegal activity, but it might be still rather suspicious.
