2152Re: [gaykingdom] Yahoo snooping
- Jul 1, 2005Do you mind if I forward this to some of the other Yahoo lists I'm on?
Thank you for pointing this out!
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
and every group you visit.
Take a look at their updated privacy statement:
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.
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.
