How We Respond to “Do Not Track” Signals
“Do Not Track” (“DNT”) refers to a privacy preference option used by Internet web browsers to request a web application disable its tracking or its cross-site tracking. When enabled, the browser sends a message to websites requesting them not to track the user. California law requires us to disclose how we respond to web browser DNT signals. At this time, there currently is not an industry or legal standard for recognizing or honoring DNT signals, thus our Site does not respond to DNT signals. We will await the result of work by the privacy community and the industry to determine when such a response is appropriate and what form should it take. For more information concerning what personal information we track and what information may be shared with third parties, continue reading below.
