  • Disclosure
    Nobody pays me to write any of the copy on my blog, and should I ever have the good fortune that they do, I will declare it. My main employment is as the owner and principal of The Future Place consultancy. The Future Place provides two key services 1) training and services to industry and academic bodies and 2) consultancy services to companies. The details of the companies I work with are a private matter, but if I blog about any company who has paid The Future Place more than expenses recently (approx. two years) I will mention that they are a client. I hold equity in Virtual Surveys and provide consulting services to them from time to time. I am paid to run courses for a number of trade bodies and over the last few years clients have included ESOMAR, AMSRS, MRS, and MRIA.

Hi Graham, as I understand it, if I choose to Google I agree to it looking at what I do. The difference is that if you choose to use Yahoo! Mail not only will it open your emails and use them, it will open my emails to you and use them, without seeking any permission from me.

I suspect that this may well turn out to be illegal in Europe as it is interfering with the mail, in the way that Phorm was judged to be illegal.


How is this different from the automated scanning that Google does to provide relevant ads, screen spam , etc?
