How FNC responds to Do Not Track (DNT) browser settings
Some browsers, plug-ins and other mechanisms have the setting for "do not track" or "DNT". When FNC receives a DNT signal or setting it does not override that setting. FNC does not treat you differently if you have that setting, however, the website itself may function in a different way.
