Personally Relevant Experiences

  • Yahoo!7 provides personally relevant product features, content, and advertising, and spam and malware detection by scanning and analysing Mail, Messenger, and other communications content. Some of these features and advertising will be based on our understanding of the content and meaning of your communications. For instance, we scan and analyse email messages to identify key elements of meaning and then categorise this information for immediate and future use.
    • Please read our FAQ to learn more.
  • Yahoo!7 Mail may include interactive mail features from third parties as well. Your personally identifiable information is not directly shared with the 3rd party without your consent.

Message Search and Access

  • Yahoo!7 Mail and Yahoo!7 Messenger now share a common search platform. You may now elect to archive Yahoo!7 instant messages along with Yahoo!7 Mail messages and search them together (including Voice Mail, SMS, and more).
  • Messages stored on Yahoo!7 servers in this manner are accessible from any computer system or device able to access Yahoo!7 Mail or the latest versions of Yahoo!7 Messenger.
  • Yahoo!7 may scan and analyse instant messages you elect to archive in order to provide personally relevant product features, content, and advertising, and spam and malware detection.

Information Sharing and Disclosure Practices

  • Yahoo!7 Mail includes IP addresses in outgoing mail message headers, as specified by standard Internet protocol.
  • When users click on the Spam and Not Spam buttons, information is sent to Yahoo!7's anti-spam team or other spam compliance service providers for review, and aspects of these messages may be shared with the sender to reduce spam. See our spam FAQ for more information.
  • The Yahoo!7 Mail Personal Address service provides domain registration through Internet Names Worldwide. We ask you to supply the personal information of the registrant and administrative contact such as their name, address, telephone number, and email address. This information is transmitted to Internet Names Worldwide (a division of Melbourne IT Limited), or "INWW," for the purpose of registering your web address (domain name). By registering a web address, the personal information that you indicate as registrant and administrative contact will be made publicly available by INWW as required by the Internet's governing organization, ICANN.
