AOL and Yahoo have come together as Oath, and part of Verizon. By continuing to use our services, you agree to Oath’s new Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. Below is a summary of some of the key updates.

How we collect and use data.

We’ve updated some of the ways we collect and analyze user data. This includes: analyzing content and information when you use our services, linking your activity on third-party sites and apps with information we have about you, and providing anonymized and aggregated reporting.

Combining data.

We also combine data among our services and across your devices and Oath accounts. This allows us to provide more personalized content, advertising and services. We’ve provided information about your choices with respect to your use of our services, and given you control in our Privacy Controls section.

Business to Business.

The Oath Business-to-Business Privacy Policy applies when you use Flurry, Gemini, ONE by AOL, Convertro, BrightRoll or any other Oath business-to-business products. All other consumer-facing activities are covered by the Oath Privacy Policy. Learn More.

Key Points in Terms of Service

  • We’ve added a mutual arbitration clause.

    Hopefully, disputes will never be an issue, but in the case of one, this allows a third-party arbitrator to help us resolve them. We’ve also added a class action waiver. These provisions are an important part of our relationship with you, so please read them carefully.

  • We’ve specified the legal entity that provides each service to you.

    For some services, this may be a different entity than the entity that previously provided the service. We’ve also reserved the right to transfer the providing entity for each service in the future.

  • Applicability of Terms.

    If you are using our services on behalf of another account owner (e.g., as an administrator, consultant or analyst) or on behalf of a company, business or other entity, the Terms of Service apply to your activities and are binding on the account owner or entity.

  • Indemnity for Non-Personal Use.

    If you are using our Services on behalf of a company, business or other entity, or if you are using our Services for commercial purposes, we’ve added an indemnity provision, which requires you and the entity to protect us against certain legal actions.

  • We’ve updated our choice of law and forum provisions.

    New York law now governs and New York, New York is the designated forum.
