Hello,

just to inform all translators that Paypal,(owned by EBay)has now implemented a new regulation representing a major breach in privacy : in short, if you sign up with them (or have signed up) you basically agree that you allow them to give away all your information (including transactions) to the federal state of the USA !

to have a full picture, have a look at the following article : http://www.thenation.com/doc.mhtml?i=20030707&s=engle

Maybe it's time to change provider. (I have an account with them but luckily never used it !).

I have read the link. It sounds like 1984 of Orwell.
If this trend continues, I don't think that your changing the service provider is going to be of any help.
