Handling of ‘Do Not Track’ Signals
The California Online Privacy Protection Act provides that a website operator must:
“Disclose how the operator responds to web browser ‘do not track’ signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services if the operator engages in that collection.”
It is important for you to know that we do not engage in the type of collection referenced in California law.
