Preventing products (Rmd, Shinyapps) to request third party data (and thereby communicate the user's IP address)

We've set up an RStudio Connect server at our institution and would like to embed some visualisations on the server within our home page with an iframe. Our IT observed that in one of our visualisations, a javascript library is loaded from mathjax.rstudio.com. Theoretically, RStudio is now in possession of the user's IP address. This goes against our policy: It is prohibited to send the IP addresses of users visiting our site to third parties.

Is there a way to automatically check each application on RStudio Connect if data is retrieved from third party sites?
