Always send Do Not Track header

This policy setting allows you to configure how Internet Explorer sends the Do Not Track (DNT) header. If you enable this policy setting Internet Explorer sends a DNT:1 header with all HTTP and HTTPS requests. The DNT:1 header signals to the servers not to track the user. For Internet Explorer 9 and 10:If you disable this policy setting Internet Explorer only sends the Do Not Track header if a Tracking Protection List is enabled or inPrivate Browsing mode is used. For at least Internet Explorer 11:If you disable this policy setting Internet Explorer only sends the Do Not Track header if inPrivate Browsing mode is used. If you don’t configure the policy setting users can select the Always send Do Not Track header option in Internet Explorer settings. By selecting this option Internet Explorer sends a DNT:1 header with all HTTP and HTTPS requests; unless the user grants a site-specific exception. Internet Explorer sends a DNT:0 header to any sites granted an exception. By default this option is turned on.
