      Yahoo is Tracking Group Members


      1-14-06

      If you belong to ANY Yahoo Groups - be aware that Yahoo is now using
      "Web Beacons" to track every Yahoo Group user. 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.

      Look at their updated privacy statement at
      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." On the page that opens, find a paragraph entitled "Outside the Yahoo Network."

      In that section find a little "Click Here to Opt Out" link that will let you "opt-out" of their snooping. Be careful! NOT to click on the next button shown. It is an "Opt Back In" button that, if clicked, will UNDO
      the opt-out.

      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..

      Yahoo Web Beacons Igniting Controversy Yahoo's current privacy policy
      is causing consternation among some users who object to their use of
      so-called 'web beacons'. Known in most circles as web bugs, these
      invisible images are embedded in websites and email and used to track
      your surfing - and even tell whether you've opened a particular email.

      Greetings GODFATHA!

      Try the "opt out" option first. I know we can't entirely be free of these snoopers, but it's just a suggestion.

      Greetings Ifasehun!

      I like my yahoo account as well. Because of the large size it helps me out a great deal.

      Like I said to GODFATHA we may never be free of the snoopers. At least we have an "opt out" option, even though that may not do much from all the snooping they have done already.

      Peace
