Cookies; Do Not Track
Some Web browsers offer a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signal, which is an HTTP header field indicating the User’s preference regarding tracking or cross-site user tracking. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret DNT signals, SCC does not currently respond to DNT signals, if any, that SCC may receive from any browsers. SCC takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology.
