CONTROLS FOR DO-NOT-TRACK FEATURES

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have information about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. The Site does not track your browsing activities across third party websites and we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your preference not to be tracked online. No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, we do not currently respond to DNT signals which may be sent from your computer or mobile device or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will provide information about that practice in a revised version of this privacy policy.
