I have an issue with the new set up involving Oath. I do not wish to use the AOL news etc service and I certainly do not want more advertising, no matter how targeted. I believe I have an agreement with talktalk which provides me with broadband and I should be able to access my account and email without signing up to Oath. Does the new arrangement and my apparent inability to access my account and email withour interference from Oath mean that talktalk has unilaterally altered the terms of our agreement and is in breach of our contract?
Or is there a way to achieve access without Oath?
You don't have to use Oath services at all. Currently the logout of MyAccount and WebMail reverts to the News and TV Guide page but if you don't wish to set Oath cookies or select marketing preferences then just select another page. Easiest way is to set your preferred home page in your browser then it's easy to select that to go to when you log out of your MyAccount etc.
