If you opt-out, no further data collection or tracking will occur.

Do Not Track: Some Internet browsers – like Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari – include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals. Since uniform standards for “DNT” signals have not been adopted, some features of the Peak Sites do not respond to browser “DNT” signals. Peak takes privacy seriously and will continue monitoring developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard. To learn more about “DNT,” please visit “All About Do Not Track.”
