How We Handle Do Not Track Requests
Because we are a small business and due to the complexity of honoring Do Not Track Requests, we do not provide a way to request that you are not tracked. Although, some of our third-party vendors may have methods of opting out of tracking. Please contact those third-parties individually to inquire if they honor Do Not Track Requests.
