Regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission have promoted the concept of Do Not Track as a mechanism to permit Internet users to control online tracking activity across websites through their browser settings. Since no industry standard has been adopted, we currently do not process or comply with any web browser’s “do-not-track” signal or other similar mechanism that indicates a request to disable online tracking of individual users who visit Qmerit Owned Sites.
We may update this Privacy Notice to reflect changes to our data practices. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (if applicable) or by means of a notice on our website or in the Sites prior to becoming effective.
