Do Not Track
Various browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari, currently offer a “do not track” or “DNT” option that relies on a technology that sends a signal to websites a user visits bout that user’s browser DNT preferences. While SimplyConvert and our affiliate law firms attempts to honor the DNT instructions received from a user’s browser, SimplyConvert cannot guarantee that it will always respond to such signals because a common industry standard for DNT has not bee adopted. SimplyConvert will continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology.
