How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals
Gourd Creative does not track its visitors over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, internet browsers such as Chrome and Safari allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.

Third parties that have content embedded on our website may set cookies on a user’s browser and/or obtain information about the fact that a web browser visited a specific page on our website from a certain IP address. Third parties cannot collect any other personally identifiable information from our website unless you provide it to them directly.
