Yahoo To Scrub Search Logs After 90 Days

Yahoo announces that it will start anonymising its search logs after 90 days, a shorter retention period than Google (nine months) and Microsoft (18 months). In short, this means queries on Yahoo won't be personally identifiable (that is, tied to a user name or ID) after only 90 days, a fact that's sure to please privacy advocates concerned about search companies gleaning insane amounts of user-specific search data.
