Sorry if this has already been answered, but do we know how many people have DNT set?

I'd advocate for a "Do Not Log Anything At All" header that would allow us to respect such a preference.Really, I don't see good reason to jam one use case into something it so apparently wasn't designed for. We'd be making some bold and wasteful assumptions on behalf of our users.-AaronOn Tue, Jan 13, 2015 at 4:04 PM, Christian Aistleitner <email@example.com> wrote:_______________________________________________Hi,

The first/third party distinction and expemptions are clearly cut in
technical documents (although along different lines in different
commentaries). However, from my point of view, this distinction
ignores real-life users.
I for one don't want to spend half an hour to figure out which parts
of a page are first/third party. I'd just expect the gathering/using
of data to stop altogether.
And according to , I am not the only user who feels this way:
Preliminary results suggest that users do not share nearly so
nuanced view of tracking, but rather simply expect data collection
and use to cease when they click a Do Not Track button.
One can always do better than the minimum requirements of a standard.
For DNT, one can always choose to interpret it in a more restrictive
way and thereby move closer to the expectation of the users of the
 A. M. McDonald and J. M. Peha, "Track Gap: Policy Implications of
User Expectations for the `Do Not Track' Internet Privacy Feature,"
39th Telecommunications Policy Research Conference (TPRC), 2011.
