I hardly ever use Yahoo in China without a proxy, but when I recently logged into my account with my VPN turned off I got the message above. Yahoo is specifically asking its customers if they mind that their data would be stored on servers located in China. They note that ‘privacy protections provided by China may be different from those provided by your country‘.
Do any other foreign Internet companies that are active in China also give users the choice where their data will be stored? This is the first time I have seen a message like this on any website that I access from China.
