Yahoo is Tracking Group Members

Hi All - not sure which Forum to show this, but I think you may be interested .....

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 web site and every group you Visit, even when you're not connected to Yahoo. Look at their updated
Privacy statement at click here

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, 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.
I am adding the link for you to opt out at

click here


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.
