Do-Not-Track Signals and Similar Mechanisms.Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites with which the browser communicates. Because of differences in how web browsersincorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are awareof them. There currently is disagreement, including among participants in the leading Internet standards-setting organization, concerning what, ifanything, websites should do when they receive such signals.
We currently do not take action in response to these signals, but, if and when a final standard is established and accepted, we may reassess how to respondto these signals.
