INVESTORPLACE - Jan 27 - The real value in many online businesses is consumer data. However, that data carries the risk of being hacked. IAC spun off Match.com and lumped in The Princeton Review as well as Tutor.com. Lumping them together makes no sense unless there is a cross-promotion or data sharing between them. Jennifer Kohn, SVP of Communications at The Princeton Review said that its data is stored and managed completely independently of any other Match company. There are no US laws regarding data sharing but government crackdown on privacy and data sharing is coming. It could gut Match.com and its ability to cross-promote and share data.
