Does Skyword respond to Do Not Track Signals?
The Skyword tracking cookie uses pseudonymization techniques to avoid collecting personally identifying information about your online activities, but does maintain a record of the Skyword-generated content you have visited. However, we will not even record pseudonymized information if you set your browser to send a “do not track”signal. In this case, we will only record that a view occurred, with no unique information about who the viewer was.
