This is partially the correct answer. The opt-out mechanism means that you may receive advertising that you have not asked for, provided that you are given the opportunity to object, i.e. to explicitly state that you do not want to receive such advertising in the future.

The Do Not Track option is a web browser setting for disabling tracking. There are also some cases where the opt-out option is also permissible, which means that you may receive advertising that you have not asked for, provided that you are given the opportunity to object (see the ePrivacy Directive here: https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/news/eprivacy-directive).


It is quite common that after visiting some sites, we receive unwanted advertising – i.e. advertising that we have not asked for. This is due to the fact that the advertisers have not implemented the right option for obtaining our consent, which should be the…
