How to Configure Opt-out and Do Not Track Settings for Users

 

The Opt-out option in Qualaroo allows users to block cookie tracking with its dedicated opt-out URL. Users can also opt for the Do Not Track option for Qualaroo cookies on supported browsers.

 

Disabling cookie tracking can enable users to:

 

  • Protect their privacy.

  • Safeguard personal information.

 

In this article, you will learn:

  1. How to enable the Opt-out option 

  2. How to enable the Do not track option

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 qualaroo.com, which JavaScript will detect via 3rd-party cookies.

 

NOTE:

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.

2. Also, clearing your cookies, running in incognito/private mode, or using a different browser will enable tracking again.
