Yahoo is Snooping Again
For your information ...
Yahoo is now using something called "Web Beacons"
to track Yahoo Group users around the net and see what you're
doing and where you are going - similar to cookies. Yahoo is recording
every website and every group you visit. Take a look at their updated
privacy statement: http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy
About half-way down the page, in the section on
cookies, you will see a link that says web beacons. Click on the
phrase web beacons. http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy/us/beacons/details.html
That will bring you to a paragraph entitled
"Outside the Yahoo Network." In this section you'll see a little
"click here to opt out" link that will let you "opt-out" of their new
method of snooping.
Once you have clicked that link, you are exempted.
Notice the "Success" message on the top of the next
page.BE CAREFUL because on that page there is a "Cancel Opt-out"
button that, if clicked, will *undo** the opt-out.
