DO NOT TRACK REQUESTS   
Some Web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Each browser communicates “Do Not Track” signals to websites differently, making it unworkable to honor each and every request correctly. In order to alleviate any communication error between browsers and website, TOT does not respond to “Do Not Track” signals at this time. As the technology and communication between browser and website improves, TOT will reevaluate the ability to honor “Do Not Track” signals and may make changes to TOT policy.
