Minyanville’s Absurd Privacy Policy

February 23, 2010 3 comments

I was doing some research for an upcoming article about Every Day Low Prices, and ran across some information on  At first I was disgusted with their obtrusive and ridiculous ads.  But then a video featuring Josh Lipton started, automatically.  Even though I was annoyed at the auto-starting video, I thought the content was not only informative, it was astonishingly entertaining!

I proceed to sign up for a Minyanville account so that I could comment on the video.  Knowing their ads were out of control, I thought it would be best to read their privacy policy before I decided which E-mail address to divulge. I am glad I made that decision! Minyanville’s privacy policy is absolutely absurd! Check out these three segments:

Personal Information

We will not sell or rent your personal information.

We may share your personal information with third parties solely for the purpose of providing services to you.

As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions.

Their privacy policy starts out stating they wont share your personal information what-so-ever.  Then it states they may share it.  Finally it says, they may actually end up selling it. Unbelievable.

In case they decide to change it at a later date, here is a PDF of their privacy policy.

I will post my findings and analysis at It amazes me how such large companies let seemingly small problems fester and create such huge problems!

Now I just have to figure out who my first victim will be. I have so many to choose from… Dunkin Donuts, Aetna, Realtors, Developers, Auto manufacturers, Building Management companies, Phonebook companies, News papers…
