While tracking is widespread over the internet, there are things you can do to minimize these activities, as explained here
- You may download the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on 這裡.
- You may turn on the Do Not Track (“DNT”) setting in your browser, which will enable your browser to send a special signal to websites, analytics companies, plug in providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity. To turn on your DNT signal, please visit https://allaboutdnt.com/#adjust-settings. Please note that not all companies will respond to or honor DNT signals.
- You can also download the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
- With respect to social media “share” buttons, many of these social media sites handle tracking differently depending on whether or not a user is logged in and the preferences selected by users. If you use social media and want to protect your browsing privacy, we recommend that you adjust your individual settings for each third-party social media company with whom you have an account, so as to minimize cross-site tracking.
- Note that LatticeWork, does not respond to DNT signals in order to provide the Services, maintain security and prevent fraud.
On your mobile device, your operating system may provide you with additional options to opt out of interest based advertising or to otherwise reset your mobile identifiers. For example, you may use the “Limit Ad Tracking” setting (on iOS devices) or a setting to “Opt out of Interest-Based Ads” (on Android) which allows you to limit the use of information about your use of apps for purposes of serving ads targeted to your interests.
Please note that even if you opt out using the mechanisms above, advertisements may still be visible to you when using the Site and/or Applications.
