Online tracking and how we respond to “Do not track” signals
When you use our website, we and certain third parties (such as our advertising networks, digital advertising partners, and social media platforms) may collect personal information about your online activities, over time and across third-party websites. Certain web browsers allow you to instruct your browser to send Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals to websites you visit, informing those sites that you do not want your online activities to be tracked.
At this time, our website is not designed to respond to all types of DNT signals or similar mechanisms from browsers as there is no common, industry-accepted standard for doing so. Thus, information about your online activities may continue to be tracked on our site and used to maintain our website’s functionality and for our analytics purposes described in this Privacy Notice even if your browser sends us a DNT signal.
However, when we recognize a relevant DNT signal, we aim to suppress the third-party tags that are used to recognize your computer once you navigate away from our site and which are used to present you with Malhotra Jewellers advertisements. As noted, since there is no uniform standard for DNT signal recognition, we may update our policy and practice as new technologies and solutions emerge. As indicated in the “Options to opt-out” section above, we offer you certain choices in connection with the personal information we collect about you and our interest-based advertising activities.
