Respect the Do Not Track header

Requirement#

The system must respect the user's chosen value for the Do Not Track (DNT) header.

Description#

Systems usually request information from their users, obtain it from third parties or collect it based on their interactions with the application. The DNT header holds information about a user's preference regarding being tracked by the websites they visit. Websites often ignore this header and proceed to track the user's activities, which could represent a privacy violation if no consent is requested.
