Do Not Track (DNT)
DNT is the concept that has been promoted by regulatory authorities, in particular the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites. Currently we do not respond to DNT signals because no DNT standard has been adopted yet.
