Do Not Track:
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. SSDA is committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information collected on the SSDA Site for third party purposes, and that is why SSDA provides the opt-out links below. However, SSDA does not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT.
