Yahoo is tracking group members
Just got this from another YahooGroup owner and thought I would pass along the information:
Yahoo is Tracking Group Members
If you belong to ANY "Web Beacons" to track every . It's similar to cookies, but allows Yahoo to record every website and every group you visit, even when you're not connected to Yahoo . - be aware that Yahoo is now using
Look at their updated privacy statement at http://info.yahoo.com/privacy/us/yahoo/details.html
About half-way down the page, in the section on cookies, you will see a link that says WEB BEACONS . Click on the phrase " . " On the page that opens, on the left find a box entitled "Opt-Out . " . In that section find "opt-out of interest-matched advertising" link that will let you "opt-out" of their snooping . Click it and then click the opt-out button on the next page . Note that Yahoo's invasion of your privacy - and your ability to opt-out of it - is not user-specific . It is MACHINE specific . That means you will have to opt-out on every computer (and browser) you use . Please forward this to your other groups . You might complain, too, but I'm not sure if anyone is listening . I remember when they signed all users up to get spam and we had to opt out of that a few years ago .
Please send this to anyone or any group you would like .
