Obtaining consent...

That's funny because I don't remember giving arseholes like FaceBook the right to track every website I visit, And since I don't have a FaceBook account I won't be able to 'opt-out' of anything...

Same goes for all those people who fell for the Windows 10 trap since there is no way to opt-out of Microsoft spying on you...

It depends...

"rules that apply to voice providers weren't a good fit with Internet providers"

I'm sorry... but isn't 'do not track' almost the same as 'do not call' ?

If my number is added to a 'do not call' register and some marketing a-hole decides to call me anyway how is that different from setting 'do not track' in my browser and being tracked by some ad-slinging f*ckwad company ?
