Does anyone know anyone or have experience with honoring Do Not Track / DNT with an affiliate marketing program? Asking for a friend.
My friend wants to offer an affiliate program for bloggers linking to their site, and they’ll pay them if the link click result in a sale. They are using a 3rd party provider to handle paying the affiliates.
My friend is also privacy-friendly, so they don’t want to provide attribution (leak data to a 3rd party affiliate marketing provider) if the link-clicker has DNT enabled in their browser.
The affiliate provider (and obviously the affiliate blogs themselves) wont like this, but this type of attribution leakage seems necessary in order to honor Do Not Track. Is that the case?
If you know a site/person/organization honoring DNT with an affiliate program, let me know, i have some more questions.
