Turn Viglink off?

In case you don't know, all links in posts on this site are converted into links running through viglink.com. For instance the link to the Facebook page in my signature is actually http://api.viglink.com/api/click?for...13585497977883
(Try for yourself, just right-click, select copy link and paste into Notepad or something)

I kinda dislike the idea of third parties being able to track everywhere I go (or click on) and I wonder if there is a possibility to switch this feature off, so that the links, both those I post in my messagesand those appearing in other's posts, stay unaltered.
A second point of concern is that I can't find anywhere on this site a warning of some sort this technique is being used. And if I am not mistaken, this is required by law... (but correct me if I am wrong)
