Enabling "Do not track" browser flag interferes with lightbox timing rules

The lightbox form has a "How Often" timing delay of every 5 days. However, even after it's dismissed (which should dismiss it for 5 days?) it continues to show up to anyone viewing the site. Example URL (there is a 30 second delay to show the lightbox): http://www.lipscomb.edu/news/archive/detail/101/29847

Just an FYI in case anyone else views this thread. The problem, in this case, stems from having the "Do Not Track" flag enabled on your browser. If this is the case, the cookie is never set to prevent the lightbox from appearing or following your delay settings. Note DNT is enabled by default on Internet Explorer 10, however other browsers that support it the user must explicitly set it. Hope that helps someone else.
