Surprise surprise: Yahoo and AOL just gave themselves the right to read your emails


....and yes... Deja Vue. They already gave themselves the right previously. Just making sure you know ..

;)


Oath, the media division of Verizon that runs both AOL and Yahoo, is unifying the privacy policy of its two giant legacy Internet brands. 

That means an updated set of privacy terms and policies for hundreds of millions of users. 

Now that online privacy has become a major issue post Zuckerberg grilling on Capitol Hill, it is all the more meaningful to realize what you're seeing...

When logged in to a Yahoo Mail account Friday users report that Oath notes that it has the right to read your emails, instant messages, posts, photos and even look at your message attachments. And it might share that data with parent company Verizon, too.




Emails related to your banking and financial transactions appear to be equally in the crosshairs of Oath's ad targeting engine.

There appears to be another big change for Yahoo users, too: Oath's previous mutual arbitration clause and class-action waiver has been updated and extended across the company's services to include Yahoo as well

HEATHER WADE ROCKS MIDNIGHT: Ultra Top Secret: Assessment of Situation / Statement on Position on UFOs: Last night before the daily broadcast of MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT began, Art Bell posted a Facebook message that breaking news could occur on the program.. Host Heather Wade followed up with a ‘brace for it’ message.When the intro music finally ended, Wade waded deep into the Men In Black danger zone: Revealed though her radio broadcast and now on the Midnight in the Desert page (http://ift.tt/2sqCSRZ) are secret documents said to be given to Wade by a trusted source..Stanton Friedman, an expert in the UFO community who goes back decades in research, told Art Bell that the documents now downloadable are all new pieces of information.. and even more, that they prove government knowledge of different types of extra-terrestrial beings. Even that we truly did recover bodies..Bombshell stuff if it proves true.
And speaking of that.. the MIDNIGHT page still has a caveat to the breaking news…
