      How to stop Phorm profiling your website

      I posted the following information on Bad Phorm.

      I spoke to Mark Burgess on the phone this afternoon with my concerns and request for removing our domains from Phorm / Associated companies, first off Mark assured me, that the Network was not live yet and that there was no option or ability to remove / blacklist any websites in their eyes.

      Ten minutes later, Mark Burgess rang myself back, with a clarification, that this is possible.

      To remove your websites from Phorm etc you have to write in and request this info.

      I asked why the U-Turn and Mark replied that he had checked legally.

      I asked if I could email this request in and was told yes.

      So there you go folks, email your requests in now.

      info@phorm.com

      I have already sent ours in.



      As a website, we are totally 100% against Phorm and have now emailed our request for all of our websites to be excluded from anything to do with them.

      If enough people who own websites do this, then it is going to be harder for Phorm to profile the sites, to give targeted adverts.
