Want to try to limit your vulnerability to telemarketers, online data miners, and the like?

Allen St. John at Consumer Reports has written 6 Easy Opt-Outs to Protect Your Privacy. This article reviews opt-outs such as the national do-not-call registry and a few industry-specific opt-outs to prevent the spread of personal information (for instance, one that applies to major banks and another that will get you off lists to receive "pre-approved" credit offers). St. John also points his readers to the World Privacy Forum's Top 10 Opt Outs, which he calls "a comprehensive resource of websites and organizations that help consumers reduce the amount of marketing material coming their way."
