What is "do not track"?
"Do not track" is a mechanism for the development and implementation of the Internet industry that the Internet recommends, allowing Internet users to control and track their online activities by using browser settings. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is working with industry organizations, web browsers, technology companies, and regulatory agencies to develop non-tracking technology standards. Although some progress has been made, it has been very slow. So far, no standards have been adopted. Therefore, Top Chef generally does not use "do not track" technology.
