HEADS UP!!! Yahoo is Tracking Group Members

This is a cut and paste from a group I belong to. You will have to do this for EACH BROWSER on EACH COMPUTER you use. It is not necessary to do it for each user.

Please share the information.

---------------------------------

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.

Cut and paste the following into your browser in order to 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 "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. 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.
