Commercial emails are emails sent by retailers and other organisations. They are not emails from individuals like your friends and family.

AOL is part of the Yahoo family of brands. AOL and Yahoo create and share aggregate statistics from commercial emails with Yahoo affiliates and commercial partners to understand how our products are being used, what consumer products and services are most popular, and other information about consumer behaviour. These statistics are generated from the commercial emails that you and other users receive.

If you are in an eligible region, you can control whether the commercial emails you receive are included in these aggregate statistics by going to the Privacy Controls page.
