ISSUE-50: Are DNT headers sent to first parties?

Are DNT headers sent to first parties?

State:
CLOSED
Product:
Tracking Preference Expression (DNT)
Raised by:
Roy Fielding
Opened on:
2011-09-22
Description:
A browser might choose not to send DNT on primary (initial page) requests, so we should decide whether the expression needs to be sent on all requests or only subresource (embedded image, script, and css) requests.

Related notes:

Shane Wiley noted that a 1st party site would be in the best position to indicate that it requires tracking and/or offer some alternative when DNT is on (e.g., subscription). Likewise, the 1st party would be the one to offer a tracking policy description, so it is useful to send DNT expression on every request.

[karl]: The answer is yes. It has been decided to close it through consensus at WG F2F on September 22.
