Do Not Track

Various browsers – including Chrome, Firefox and Safari – offer a do-not-track technology known as a DNT header. It sends the user’s browser DNT preference to websites they visit. Inspiring Teachers does not currently respond to DNT signals in part because no consistent standard of interpreting user intent or common industry standard is in place by industry groups, technology companies or regulators. We are committed to providing meaningful choice and will continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology.
