Hotjar honors the Do Not Track header, this means that if a viewer has the DNT header installed, Hotjar will not track that user.
Poll, Survey, Incoming Feedback and Recruiting widgets still work, as we consider submissions to be explicit.
The Opt-Out option we provide is a further measure to set a third-party cookie that specifically tells the Hotjar script not to track a user. With or without this, we still honour the Do Not Track header.
