Global Privacy Control (GPC) integration

The Global Privacy Control (GPC) is a privacy standard designed to give users more control over their personal information online. It allows users to signal their privacy preferences to websites and online services automatically.

With GPC, users can set their preferences once through their web browser or other tools, indicating whether they want their data to be collected, shared, or sold. Websites and services that adhere to the GPC standard are obligated to respect these preferences, providing users with a more consistent and streamlined experience across different platforms.
