Of course, none of your indexed data, nor any derivative of it, is uploaded to the internet.

It is possible however that some Spotlight metadata importer perform some internet connection. Especially, if you index some HTML documents that include some external elements (frames, scripts, images...), it is possible that the importer downloads these elements.

FoxTrot is a must for me. It indexes the drive more efficiently
than any program out there. The launcher and preview functions are
top of the line. Truly a gift, this thing is."
