Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference user can set if they do not want web services to collect information about their online activity. However, there is currently no universal standard for sending and receiving DNT signals. Due to this lack of universal standard, it would be impossible for us to promise that we comply with all known and unknown DNT standards.

Therefore, Humansitas does not in any way monitor or respond to DNT signals or other mechanisms that provide a choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about activities over time and across different websites or online services.

If a universal standard for DNT becomes available, we may revisit our DNT Policy.
