Opt out of everything here … Google – Yahoo targeted ads, Telemarketers, NebuAd, Credit Card offers …

With Google and Yahoo recently adding the ability to opt out of targeted ad’s this seemed an appropriate time to list some other places you can opt out.

Note that many of these work by adding an “optout cookie” to your browser. If you clear your browser cookies or they get deleted you’ll need to opt out again … so I recommend you bookmark this page.

A few of these require a mail in form or you calling a telephone number.

Of special note are the Credit Bureaus … Equifax, Experian, and Transunion … which can opt you out of unsolicited credit card and insurance offers globally, the government DONOTCALL registry which stops telemarketers from calling you, the search engines … which probably have more information about you than anyone and the Network Advertising initiative which lets you opt out from 16 at once.
