“Do Not Track” is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. However, there is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many websites and online services, the Riot New Media Group, Inc. currently does not respond to or alter their practices when they receive a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser.

VIII. Other helpful resources

We adhere to self-regulatory principles for interest-based advertising and participate in industry opt-outs from such ads. This does not opt you out of receiving advertising altogether. You will continue to receive other ads from advertisers not listed with these self-regulatory tools or you may receive ads that are not personalized to you.
