8. Can I use the “do not track” features on my browser or mobile phone to protect my personal information?
Most Internet browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track (DNT) feature or setting that you can activate to signal your preference not to share data about your online browsing activities. At this stage, no uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals exists.

If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will update this Privacy Notice.
