Disabling cookie tracking can enable users to:


  • Protect their privacy.

Once the user navigates to the Opt-Out URL, they will be prompted to click on the “Disable Qualaroo” button. This will set a cookie called “DNT=1” on, which JavaScript will detect via 3rd-party cookies.



1. Once the Opt-Out is enabled, Qualaroo will no longer store the anonymous ID associated with responses on the user's browser. Surveys will continue to display as usual.
