Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the website or online service that a Participant visits, indicating that the Participant does not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret Do Not Track signals, we do not currently respond to Do Not Track signal. We continue to work with the online industry to define a common understanding of how to treat Do Not Track signals.
