Oath Media

Postby mrpink999 » Wed May 16, 2018 11:51 am

I have a few "public" email accounts. Today I checked yahoo..(old ass email)

They have a new privacy statement as they are now Oath Media

Society cannot complain if they agree to the terms.....
This has been a problem for a decade now, most never read their EULA agreements

Its looking as now any time you install anything or use a service on the net you are being scanned for info..

Free apps are the rage, and its the worst form of personal piracy i have ever seen.
Anyone ever read their cell phone agreements upon registering them...... :roll:

OK, with this said....

I did not agree :D

New Privacy and Terms

Yahoo is now part of Oath, the media and tech company behind today’s top news, sports and entertainment sites and apps.

By choosing “I accept” below, you agree to Oath’s new Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. Below is a summary of some of the key updates. To learn more about our approach to privacy, click here.
How we collect and use data.

We’ve updated some of the ways we collect and analyze user data in order to deliver services, content, relevant advertising and abuse protection.
This includes: analyzing content and information when you use our services (including emails, instant messages, posts, photos, attachments, and other communications), linking your activity on other sites and apps with information we have about you, and providing reports to other parties regarding user trends.

Sharing Data with Verizon.

Oath and its affiliates may share the information we receive with Verizon. Learn more about Verizon’s privacy practices.

Combining data.

We also combine data among our services and across your devices. This will provide you with better personalized services and features across your devices and Oath accounts. We’ve provided information about your choices with respect to your use of our services, and given you control in our Privacy Controls section.

Key Points in Terms of Service

We’ve added a mutual arbitration clause.
Hopefully, disputes will never be an issue, but in the case of one, this allows a third-party arbitrator to help us resolve them. We’ve also added a class action waiver. These provisions are an important part of our relationship with you, so please read them carefully.
We’ve specified the legal entity that provides each service to you.
For some services, this may be a different entity than the entity that previously provided the service. We’ve also reserved the right to transfer the providing entity for each service in the future.
General provisions that apply to billing, auto-renewal, and refunds have been added.
Unless the additional terms for a service override the Terms of Service, these provisions apply to your use of our paid services.
Applicability of Terms.
If you are using our services on behalf of another account owner (e.g., as an administrator, consultant or analyst) or on behalf of a company, business or other entity, the Terms of Service apply to your activities and are binding on the account owner or entity.
Indemnity for Non-Personal Use.
If you are using our Services on behalf of a company, business or other entity, or if you are using our Services for commercial purposes, we’ve added an indemnity provision, which requires you and the entity to protect us against certain legal actions.
We’ve updated our choice of law and forum provisions.
New York law now governs and New York, New York is the designated forum.

Business to Business.

The Oath Business-to-Business Privacy Policy applies when you use Flurry, Gemini, ONE by AOL, Convertro, BrightRoll or any other Oath business-to-business products. All other consumer-facing activities are covered by the Oath Privacy Policy.

Oath Inc. is a subsidiary of Verizon Communications

Gotta agree there!
Do not get intimidated by walls of text!
They do that to intimidate customers into agreeing...

I think that there would be less "fine print" if you signed a contract with the Devil! :shock:
Unfortunately, corporations would gladly take your soul from you without you knowing, if they could.

I live in a country where you can click on anything and agree to anything on net , but nobody will ever bother to knock on your door and ask you to actually do you part !
Ah , advantages of living in shitty economy . :lol:

On other hand , try to say shit to (local) government/mobsters and you are in deep shit . . . :|

App Pirates everywhere, the scum!

I left yahoo years ago after they robbed me of 134 victories in their chess program (glitches), right at the end of the game, I could not move making the other player win by default.
