Do-Not-Track signals and similar mechanisms

Some web browsers may transmit ‚Äúdo-not-track‚ÄĚ signals to the sites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. There currently is disagreement, including among participants in the leading internet standards-setting organization, concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals.

Updates to Our Privacy Notice

We may need to update our Privacy Notice. The latest version of the Privacy Notice is always available on our website. We will communicate any material changes to the Privacy Notice, such as the purpose of why we use your personal data, the identity of the Controller or your rights.
