DO NOT TRACK
We do not yet commit to responding to “Do Not Track” signals from browsers on our websites, in part because regulators have not approved a uniform industry standard for “Do Not Track,” including a clear criteria for assessing a user’s intent. We are dedicated to monitoring “Do Not Track” advancements and the establishment of a standard.
