The website for Various, Inc states its mission:

"...Its subsidiaries include: customer acquisition, online marketing, online business networking, and online video networking."

That's marketing-ese for "collecting your personal information, including your date of birth, full name, address, email address, credit card numbers, etc."

It does business as FriendFinder. Hmmm. What a great way of collecting TONS and TONS of personal and demographic information about people.

I discovered this tidbit when I got directed to millionairematch dot com when I responded to a personal ad. The "Corporate" information at millionairematch dot com looks innocuous enough, and doesn't even mention Various, Inc. BUT, the copyright on the page was Various, Inc., which led me to discover the true nature of the company posing as a dating service.

Beware out there...
