    I don't know if you've heard about this yet, but the STD dating site Positive Singles is being sued in a class action lawsuit. It seems they promise to treat your profile and information with utmost privacy when you join, then after you join you discover your same profile on hundreds of other sites, some with gay themes, Christian themes, kink themes, specific ethnic themes, etc, any of which can be accessed with your log in data from Positive Singles.:hmmmm2:

    If you do an internet search on Traverse Legal, the full complaint is published there.

    I mean....really!?!

    Read the fine print. Usually there is an opt out in the fine print. Match dot com kinda does the same thing.

    Ah.....usually. In this case my friend, there is no such opt-out clause. According to the posted complaint, also in their terms of service is a clause which basically states that by sharing any information or intellectual property via any form of communication you use on their site, you grant them a lifelong unrestricted license to use said information forever.

    ....read the complaint my friend. It's, shall we say....interesting.
