  • Does your company serve different pages to visitors, based on information derived from tracking devices? If yes, please explain.
  • Does your company target individuals based on their health or financial status?
  • Are there any user search or usage habits that your company will not use for targeting purposes or tracking? If yes, what are they?
  • If your company tracks or targets visitors, how does it notify visitors to your company’s site of this practice? If it does not provide notification, why not?
