Treehouse

Do Not Track is an excellent idea.  The DNT website describes it best:

Do Not Track is a technology and policy proposal that enables users to opt out of tracking by websites they do not visit, including analytics services, advertising networks, and social platforms. At present few of these third parties offer a reliable tracking opt out, and tools for blocking them are neither user-friendly nor comprehensive. Much like the popular Do Not Call registry, Do Not Track provides users with a single, simple, persistent choice to opt out of third-party web tracking.

The preference is sent from the client to the server via a HTTP header but you can also get its value using JavaScript:

// "1" or "unspecified"
if(navigator.doNotTrack == 1) {
    // Do (or don't do) stuff.
}

If you wanted to be extreme about honoring your user’s preference, you could use that to lazyload (or not) advertising, analytics, or other utilities. Probably a bit extreme but it’s there for you to use!
