Do Not Track Signals
Some Web browsers incorporate a "do-not track" or similar feature that signals to Web sites with which the browser communicates that a visitor does not want to have his or her online activity tracked. As of the Effective Date of this policy, not all browsers offer a "do-not-track" option and "do-not-track" signals are not yet uniform. The Site does not currently respond to "do-not-track" signals or other similar features.
