Do Not Track (DNT)
DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the internet industry to develop and implement as a mechanism for allowing internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. As such, CareerEquity does not generally respond to “do not track” signals.
