What is Do Not Track (DNT)?
DNT is the proposed functionality that requests that a website disable its tracking of an individual user. Regulatory agencies have encouraged the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. To date, no industry standard has been adopted for DNT, therefore, BS After Dark does not respond to "do not track" signals.
