Summary: Many web browsers, along with certain mobile operating systems and applications, offer a Do-Not-Track ("DNT") option, enabling users to express a preference against the tracking of their online activities. Currently, the industry lacks a unified standard for recognizing and processing DNT signals, resulting in varying practices across different entities.
Our Stance on DNT: Keeper Dating, Inc. does not have the capability to recognize or respond to DNT signals from web browsers or other mechanisms that automatically indicate your choice against online tracking. This is due to the absence of a universally accepted standard for DNT.
Future Compliance: Should a comprehensive standard for online tracking be established and become obligatory for us to adhere to, we are committed to updating our practices accordingly. In such an event, we will update this privacy notice to reflect our new practices and ensure you are fully informed on how we handle DNT signals.
This section underscores our current limitations regarding DNT signals and our openness to adapting our practices in line with future developments and standards.
