How does ‘FreeSSL.tech Auto’ app/client handle Do Not Track signals?
The app/client doesn’t honor Do Not Track signals and Do Not Track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place. The app/client doesn’t honor them because:
The app/client need to identify and remember you so that you can be able to access the admin dashboard and configure the app/client. Let’s Encrypt CA needs to register an account with key pair & email id and returns a kid to identify that account. Let’s Encrypt do verify every request against the registered key pair and kid. Failing to provide it results in an error, and you can’t obtain free SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt. So the app/client is unable to honor Do Not Track signals.
Does our website allow third-party behavioral tracking?
It’s also important to note that we allow third-party behavioral tracking.
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.
