There are 1001 other examples where people trust there data to, and which do not provide a clear option to opt-in or opt-out of a sponsorprogram/ad/crapware.
And yes, I can say the same about MP because, even back in the time it had the sponsor from C2Media, you always had a clear option to opt-in or opt-out. And it was certainly not hidden behind a Eula, which I can not say about many other ad-sponsored programs which do not provide any clear choice. So, on the contrary, the sole fact they always provided a choice and it never was mandatory should instead give you a bit more trust that they have the right intentions with your data. Also the fact that Plus!, nor its affiliates, nor related services (like these forums) have ever broken any privacy rules should give you trust.
This said, things have changed and C2Media is not the sponsor anymore. Neither is Yuna the same as C2Media and neither have Yuna ever broken any privacy laws or rules.
But that's all besides the point of why I answered with those questions. The point was that as soon as you do stuff online, you need to trust the companies or services you use to do the right thing. No options, no eula, no nda or whatever else will change anything of that or will prevent a malicious employee of those companies to still do the bad thing. If you don't trust them or you think 'they are evil' or have 'evil' employees, then don't use it. This goes for Yuna, but also for Microsoft, Netlog, Facebook, or any other existing online service provided by any existing company.
Hence a question like "What stopping them from reading your logs" is rather useless, and, imo, can only be answered with the same questions: "What stopping any other company from publishing your private data?". If they have a bad admin you're screwed. And that has got nothing todo with having a sponsor or not, or even with being Yuna or not.
So, in the end, it is not because they wouldn't be able to answer such a question and to completely exclude the possebility for an admin turning bad for example, that you should mistrust them on that basis alone. Because no company can garantuee something like that. If you do mistrust them for that, you shouldn't be using the internet.
