Overview

OptMeowt allows Web users to make use of their rights to opt out from the sale and sharing of personal data

With the introduction of privacy regulations such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Web users have a right to limit the sale and sharing of their personal information. OptMeowt automates the process of sending opt out signals indicating the users' preferences upon visiting a website. Note: We do not collect any data from you. Third parties will also not receive your data. The permissions OptMeowt is using are required for opting you out.
