Dear Advisory Committee Representative,
Chairs,
Tracking Protection Working Group members,

The Tracking Protection Working Group [1] is now closed.

The mission of the Tracking Protection Working Group was to improve user 
privacy and user control by defining mechanisms for expressing user 
preferences around Web tracking.

The Group drafted the Tracking Preference Expression (DNT) technical 
specification and sought to find implementation consensus and adoption 
of the DNT header. Most recently, the charter was extended to permit 
discussion of the requirements for managing cookie and tracking consent 
to satisfy EU privacy legislation (GDPR).  As adoption has not 
proceeded, the specification is republished as a Working Group Note [2].

W3C thanks the group chair, Matthias Schunter (Intel), and all the 
participants in the group for their efforts.

If you have any further questions, please contact Wendy Seltzer 
<wseltzer@w3.org>.

This announcement follows section 5.2.7 of the W3C Process Document [3].

For Tim Berners-Lee, Director,
Wendy Seltzer, Strategy Lead, and
Philippe Le Hégaret, Project Management Lead;
Xueyuan Jia, W3C Marketing & Communications
