This may or may not be relavent to you, but I've just found this on another forum that I visit ;

File - read & forward

Yahoo is now using something called "Web Beacons" to track Yahoo
Group users around the Net and see what you're doing and where you
are going similar to cookies.

Yahoo is recording every website and every group you visit. Take a
look at their updated privacy statement:

http://privacy. 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".

That will bring you to a paragraph entitled "Outside the Yahoo
Network."In this section you'll see a little "click here to opt
out"link that will let you "opt-out" of their new method of snooping.

Once you have clicked that link, you are exempted. Notice
the "Success" message on the top of the next page.

Be careful, because on that same page there is a "Cancel Opt-out" button
that, if clicked, will *undo* the opt-out.

If Yahoo are doing it who else will be ?
