Information Sharing and Disclosure Practices

  • Yahoo may disclose information about Yahoo Merchant Solutions merchants as described in the Yahoo Merchant Solutions Service Agreement.
  • All Yahoo Merchant Solutions stores require a domain. The Yahoo Merchant Solutions packages include a domain, but you can use one you already own. If you order a domain for your Yahoo Merchant Solutions store, Yahoo asks for personal information such as name, address, telephone number, and email address. We share your personal information with Internet Names Worldwide (a division of Melbourne IT Limited), or "INWW," in order to process your domain registration request and maintain your account. The personal information that you provide will be made publicly available by INWW as required by the Internet's governing organization, ICANN. If you would like to change the contact information for your domain name, please contact Customer Care.
    • *Note: If you registered a domain with Yahoo Store before March 21, 2001, your domain's registrar may be Network Solutions, Inc.
