Do Not Track Disclosure under California‘s Online Privacy Protection Act: In accordance with CALOPPA, The Artist Tree does not track Users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals. However, some third-party sites do keep track of your browsing activities. Your web browser may have a setting whereby you can remove your permission for a third party to capture activities on one site and use them on another site.
