7. How Do We Respond to a Do Not Track Signal?

"Do Not Track" or "DNT" is a web browser setting that requests that a web application disables its tracking of an individual user. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser, your browser sends a special signal to websites, analytics companies, ad networks, plug in providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity. There is currently neither a statutory obligation nor an industry agreement on how to respond to a DNT signal. At this time, our website and other services are not set up to respond to the DNT signal. For more information see All About Do Not Track.
