R8500 Nighthawk FirmWare Version 1.0.2.128 phoning home

Router keeps trying to get to https://registration.ngxcld.com. Why is this happening?

On our firewall, we see Source Port 34968 or 35171 (port numbers vary) from internal IP of the Netgear Wireless router 10.nn.nn.nn to Destination Port 443 to 34.252.59.190 every hour or so. The only devices we have that use wireless are iphones and ipads. I did not notice this before the last update.
