How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals:
Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) that signals to websites that a user does not want his or her online activity tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many digital service operators, including DS Laboratories, do not recognize or respond to DNT signals.
