You'd be surprised how people take this. We had a thing in our
"conditions of service" agreement, when you sign up for an online.ie
account, that we'ed (paraphrase) "reserve the right to request information
off you to target advertising and special offers that you would be most
interested in" - and someone mailed me saying that this was a serious
breach of privacy. I was actually quite surprised.
Our mail has a nasty big 450x80 (or something) image up the top, but no
mail footer - just an X-header. What size image is the yahoo one ?
