Currently, various browsers — including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari —
offer a “do not track” or “DNT” option that relies on a technology known as a DNT
header, which sends a signal to Web sites’ visited by the user about the user’s
browser DNT preference setting. Smart Irtekaz does not currently commit to
responding to browsers’ DNT signals with respect to the Company’s Web sites, in
part, because no common industry standard for DNT has been adopted by industry
groups, technology companies or regulators, including no consistent standard of
interpreting user intent. Smart Irtekaz 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.
