Do-Not-Trackheader handled? §
GoatCounter doesn’t do any of this, it just collects some basic statistics about how many people visit your site. Adhering to the strict definition of “tracking” is virtually impossible for any site: access logs, error logs, binding a cookie to IP, and other common and sensible features could be considered “tracking”.
In the status quo: A user navigates a sequence of popular websites, many of which incorporate content from a major advertising network. In addition to delivering advertisements, the advertising network assigns a unique cookie to the user agent and compiles observations of the user’s browsing habits.
With Do Not Track: A user enables Do Not Track in her web browser. She navigates a sequence of popular websites, many of which incorporate content from a major advertising network. The advertising network delivers advertisements, but refrains from THIRD- PARTY TRACKING of the user.
