    Yes, Yahoo does use cookies. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Yahoo uses cookies to perform a variety of functions on our network of sites. Customizable services and personalized features can be provided far more easily through the use of cookies.

    You have choices about whether you want your browser to accept all cookies, selectively accept them, or reject all cookies. You can modify these settings in your browser's Preferences menu. All sites on Yahoo that prompt you to log in or that are customizable require that you accept cookies. Rejecting all cookies means you will not be able to make full use of all the products and services Yahoo offers.

    Please see the Yahoo Privacy Policy to learn more about Yahoo's use of cookies.
