Avoid AOL And Their Partners Marketing Blitz (TTID #153)

Author: TACKtech Team   Views: 10,244 /  Created: August 22, 2002
The following is provided to our viewers to help them become more informed. TACKtech Corp. is no way associated with America Online, Inc. (AOL).

If you're using AOL you may not be aware that they automatically set you up to receive targeted email, mail, popup banners, and telemarketing. You can however opt-out of these with a few simple changes to your preferences. You will need to change these preferences in each of your accounts. Some of these settings expire after a year so you will need to change them again at a later date.

This article was created for older versions of AOL. For newer versions of AOL see the revised article (TTID#267).


Step 1: Click on Settings on the toolbar and then Preferences.





Step 2: Click on Marketing.





Step 3: This is a multi-part step. Be sure to read everything in the textbox. You will be clicking on each of the purple buttons and then following the corresponding sub-steps.





Step 3(a1): Read the dialog then click Continue.





Step 3(a2): Read what is in the textbox, decide if you want to want to permit AOL to do it, select yes or no, then click OK.





Step 3(b1): Read the dialog then click Continue.





Step 3(b2): This one you need to think about. Do you like getting AOL CDs in the mail? Read what is in the textbox, decide if you want to want to permit AOL to do it, select yes or no, then click OK.





Step 3(c1): Read the dialog then click Continue.





Step 3(c2): Read what is in the textbox, decide if you want to want to permit AOL to do it, select yes or no, then click OK.





Step 3(d1): Read the dialog then click Continue.





Step 3(d2): Read what is in the textbox, decide if you want to want to permit AOL to do it, select yes or no, then click OK.





Step 3(e1): Read the dialog then click Continue.





Step 3(e2): Read what is in the textbox, decide if you want to want to permit AOL to do it, select yes or no, then click OK.





Well, that's it. Pretty simple and straight forward.
