Privacy within the Yahoo! and Microsoft Search Alliance
Yahoo! and Microsoft have taken great care to respect consumer privacy in this search alliance, which was designed from the outset to help ensure your privacy is protected. Data shared between the companies is limited to that which is necessary to operate and enhance the combined search platform, and the agreement restricts the use of search data shared between the companies. Microsoft and Yahoo! will maintain their commitments to advance consumer privacy going forward, and will provide clear notice about the agreement and the combined platform's privacy and security practices.
