My understanding has always been that other opt-out regimes would be unnecessary once we had a meaningful DNT standard in place. DNT is supposed to be a simple and persistent way to signal a user's preference.  One problem with current opt-outs is that they are not persistent.  Clear your cookies  and you're no longer opted out.

This standard will not be effective if DNT because a very narrow opt-out for some purposes, and you need to separately go to the DAA page to opt out of behavioral advertising, and later to the ESOMAR page to opt out of market research.  (And even then, both those opt-outs will suffer from the same problems we have today that DNT was designed to solve --- lack of comprehensiveness and impermanence.)

This web platform lists the parties eligible to collect information under DNT standards and the audience measurement research permitted use and it provides users with an opportunity to exclude their data contribution
