Subject: [AFIBsupport] Yahoo is tracking you...

If you belong to ANY Yahoo! Groups - be aware that Yahoo! is now
using " Web Beacons " to track every Yahoo! Group user. They're
similar to cookies, but allow Yahoo! to record every Web site and
every group you visit, even when you're not connected to Yahoo!.

http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy/us/

About halfway 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 its 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.
