Yahoo Will Not Honor Do Not Track Settings

Russell Brandom, The Verge:

Starting today, anyone visiting Yahoo will be tracked by default, regardless of whether they’ve enabled the Do Not Track setting on their browser.

That’s why I have Disconnect installed on my Chrome browser, and always will.

Yahoo Privacy Team:

We fundamentally believe the best web is a personalized one.

I don’t like passively receiving automated personalizations by some big company’s personalization algorithms; I’d rather do that on my own.
