IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS

DO NOT TRACK  - California Business & Professions Code section 22575(b) (as amended) provides that California residents are entitled to know how a website operator responds to "Do Not Track"(DNT) browser settings.  Some browsers or other tools include DNT features which, when turned on, send a signal to websites you visit indicating that you do not wish to be tracked across websites over time.  The Worldwide Web Consortium has been working with industry groups and regulators to develop a DNT browser technology standard to provide a standard for interpreting the DNT signals, but to date no final standard has been adopted.  Palmieri Tyler does not currently take actions to respond to DNT signals.  We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a DNT standard once one is created.  For more information about DNT, please visit:  www.allaboutdnt.org.
