Websites respond to web browser “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that
provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of
personal information about their online activities over time and across
third-party websites or online services. Although it is not clear that the
statute applies, we believe that an example might be a browser option allowing
you to ask websites not to track you across third-party websites so that they
can serve targeted or behavioral advertising to you. The Websites may collect
personal information using behavioral tracking or associate personal
information with other information collected using behavioral tracking. If
your browser or similar mechanism gives the Websites a “do not track” signal,
the Websites will not honor it because of the tracking described in
“Information We Collect and How We Collect It”. You should not use the Websites
if you desire a “do not track” signal, because the Websites will not honor it.

request, please submit your request in writing to LMC at the address set forth
below. Please note that under California law, LMC is only required to respond
to a request once during any calendar year.
