The #Yahoo privacy catch 22: telling to move data but not telling me the source and destination country.

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/12/15

Great move Yahoo (which I only use for Flickr): telling me that Yahoo can improve performance by moving my data to another country without telling which country the data is stored now, and which country Yahoo wants to transfer my data to.

The URL starts with https://edit.europe.yahoo.com, but does that mean to origin or target country is within Europe?

Of course the Yahoo privacy policies don’t tell either: why would they…

So I cannot confirm, nor deny the provided choice. Nice privacy catch-22!
