GooFeed Data Rights

Posted on 6.03.2007

While Feedburner service will not be interrupted as a result of the Google acquisition, Feedburner RSS publishers that do not want to have their data shared with Google have been notified that they have until June 15th, 2007 to opt-out of allowing Google to service your account.

If you fail to take action, the rights to your data will transfer from FeedBurner to Google.

Fromt the notice at Feedburner:

Opting out will terminate your user agreement with FeedBurner, permanently delete your FeedBurner account, feeds, and all related statistical data and history, and prevent the transfer of your data rights to Google.

Will this affect your privacy? Not really an issue in my opinion - just check out the Feedburner FAQ:

We are committed to transparency for our end users, and to respecting the choices they make with regards to their privacy preferences. The transition to Google’s privacy policy and the opt-out mechanism we are providing for current FeedBurner users will help us achieve these goals.
