      Hi everyone, this is important information about how to prevent
      Yahoo from tracking your web usage with something called "web
      beacons."

      Subject: Yahoo Web Beacons
      Just an FYI for all of you using Yahoo groups.

      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:

      GO TO: http://yahoo.com

      Go to the bottom of page where it says privacy statement/policy and
      click it.

      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.
      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.

      PLEASE NOTE: Once done, a "Success" message on the top of the next
      page. Be EXTRA careful because on that page there is a "Cancel Opt-
      out" button that, if clicked, will *undo* the opt-out.

      Please pass this along to any other Yahoo groups for which you are a
      member.

          Rebecca, Thank you for the information. I had to hunt it (it's now still under the cookies section, but the word "more" must be clicked on, and then it takes you to another page for web beacons). I sure appreciate your letting me know! diane cheek williams
