This is a guide to how sites can implement Do Not Track (DNT). It is based on experience gained helping sites give users control over tracking, using the DNT Consent API, where it is supported, to communicate explicit consent to sites and their third-parties. It does not aim to be a complete guide to how all the DNT building blocks can be used, but tries to deal with those that can help meet the requirements of European Data Protection and ePrivacy law, namely the requirement for prior consent laid out in the ePrivacy Directive amended by 2009/136/EC, the right to object to processing of personal data, when the legal basis is public interest or legitimate interest, set out in Article 21 of the 2016 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), or when the legal basis is Consent as set out in Article 6.1(a) of the GDPR or Article 7(a) of the 1995 Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC.

The project is hosted by Mike O'Neill
