Do Not Track
Some Internet browsers (Safari, FireFox, Internet Explorer) could transmit “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals. For now, the common standards for such signals are not yet implemented, so our software does not yet process or respond to them. We plan to continue monitoring the further development of DNT browser technology and implementation of a standard for it. You can find out more about DNT here: https://allaboutdnt.com/.
