Regardless of what it is, you put a little piece of code into the website that calls home to a Google server so to speak.
If you don't believe me, try download a Firefox addon called RequestPolicy and check random webpages on whether they call anything. A very large number do, including Eurogamer.net. Everytime you do that, google is capable of register your movements on the web. All the better if you have a named profile with a google service, however even relatively anonymous, it's worth gold to google and it's customers.
As for Origin, if they had no intentions of finding out what 3rd party software I run, why the fuck put in the EULA?
