You may remember that a few months ago, the Wikimedia Foundation decided to send an opt out message to Phorm regarding their user-profiling system.
At the time we decided in principle to do the same for our domain - wikimedia.org.uk - but we delayed implementing this until the ownership had been transferred. Now that the transfer has been completed, we have sent our notice to Phorm, which is copied below. Please note that uk.wikimedia.org has already opted out as this is a subdomain of wikimedia.org, whcih is owned by the Foundation.
