Third Party Links and Related Policies
“Stop Tracking” Policy
According to the legal requirements of some jurisdictions, websites and online service operators need to disclose how they respond to “Do Not Track Signal” and whether other third parties collect relevant personal identification information about an individual’s online activities over a period of time, across third-party websites or online services.
Some browsers have “stop tracking” functions. When these functions are activated, they usually send signals or preference messages to websites or online services accessed by users to indicate that the user does not want to be tracked. Alibaba will not respond to any “stop tracking” signal at present because the industry does not have a consistent understanding of how to interpret the “stop tracking” signal.
