We may display supplemental privacy or data collection notices that we share so you can make informed choices about what you want to do at the time you review the notices. For example, you may see a notice explaining how you can submit feedback to us, apply for a grant or sign up for a newsletter – and the personal information you need to share with us to help you with that activity.

These include social media platforms or other company websites that we link to from our websites and applications.

Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them.

We currently do not take action in response to these signals. If and when a final standard is established and accepted, we will reassess how to respond to these signals.
