Managing Do-Not-Track features in our iOS App

We understand the importance of your privacy and provide you with the ability to control how your information is collected and used. This includes respecting and enabling do-not-track features available on iOS devices.

iOS provides a DNT feature that allows you to limit the tracking of your online activities across websites and apps. When enabled, a signal is sent to websites, apps, and services requesting that your browsing is not tracked. Our iOS app is designed to respect your DNT settings. This means that if you have enabled DNT on your iOS device, our app will not track your activity. It’s important to note that the effectiveness of DNT settings may vary depending on how individual apps interpret or comply with these signals. Our commitment is to fully respect your DNT settings within the scope of our app’s functionality.

How to Enable DNT on iOS:

  1. Open Settings: Navigate to the ‘Settings’ app on your iOS device.
  2. Privacy Settings: Find and select the ‘Privacy’ option.
  3. Tracking: Look for a setting related to ‘Tracking’ or ‘Advertising’ and follow the prompts to enable DNT or limit ad tracking.

We believe in empowering you to make informed decisions about your privacy. If you have questions about the DNT feature or need assistance with adjusting your privacy settings, please contact our support team at Support@dealerimagepro.com

Your trust is paramount to us, and we are committed to ensuring that your privacy preferences are respected and implemented effectively in our iOS apps.
