This section describes the procedure for opting out of Webtrends-based web site analytics tracking as used on Mozilla web sites. There are two basic methods that can be used independently or in combination.
In order to opt out of Mozilla's Webtrends-based analytics programs, you must install an "opt-out cookie". Mozilla's web sites detect the presence of this "opt-out cookie" and disable tracking.
- Please visit this page to enable or disable the Mozilla "opt-out cookie"
Note that if you clear your cookies, delete the opt-out cookie, or if you change computers or Web browsers, you will need to perform the opt-out procedure again. Otherwise, the cookie is good for a 10-year period from the moment you "install" it.
