Some browsers support a “Do Not Track” (or, DNT) feature, a privacy preference that Users can set in certain web browsers, which is intended to be a signal to websites and services that you do not wish to be tracked across different websites or online services you visit.  Our Platform does not currently recognize or respond to DNT signals, so DNT settings do not change the way the Platform operates.
