[theme-reviewers] Redux framework may be dialing home

​Hi Kelly,

If this theme is not released by Redux itself, no tracking is allowed,
regardless of how they are set. We allow some types, but they must be
opt-in only and tied directly with the author of the theme, not third-party.

All other themes with Redux in it will have to remove the trackers.
