Why I say this? AOL has long been criticised for its poor customer
service and tactics. Now there is a new reason to get rid of AOL, and
fast. AOL has been keeping information on all the search engine
requests by customers, no problem there, however AOL has also been
giving this information to third parties who could identify AOL
customers. AOL has admitted a breach of the privacy of their customers.
So I advise dump AOL fast.
Re: AOL giving personal search data to third parties
I severly doubt if that is limited to AOL. Moreover you should ask
yourself if it matters much if such information stays in a single huge
company or is in the hand of several.
Moreover Google powers AOL AFAIK, so in short there are already two
parties that have the data.
