How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals
The “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) privacy preference is an option that may be made in some web browsers allowing you to opt-out of tracking by websites and online services. At this time, global standard DNT technology is not yet finalized and not all browsers support DNT. We therefore do not recognize DNT signals and do not respond to them.
Record Retention Policy
We will maintain your Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it is collected and in accordance with legal obligations, our record retention policy, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements.
