We are aware that do not track (DNT) is a feature offered by some browsers. If you enable this feature, it will send a signal to websites to request that your browsing isn’t tracked, for example by third-party advertisers. At present no industry-wide uniform standard has been agreed and adopted to determine how DNT requests should be managed, so our website doesn’t currently respond to DNT requests. We’ll continue to review the development of new technologies and any standard that is adopted, but for now, we won’t be able to respond to DNT requests.
