Do Not Track
Some Internet browsers - like Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari - include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals.
On our sites, we honour Do Not Track signals and do not track or plant cookies when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.
On our newsletters: Since uniform standards for “DNT” signals have not been adopted, MailChimp do not currently process or respond to “DNT” signals. MailChimp takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard.
