Hi Kathy,

The 'panel calibration' which you and Alex brought up a number of times 
can legally (EU) only be done with explicit user consent, after having 
been provided with clear and comprehensive information. Making market 
research part of the DNT standard through a permitted use doesn't make 
it a legitimate business practice.
