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!.


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.
