Why does it want my e-mail address verified for the 7-day trial? That's not very anonymous if you ask me.
Well, the idea is that you aren't completely anonymous to Orangatango. Instead, you give Orangatango limited information, which Orangatango is legally obligated to protect because of the NDA that it is bound by. In other words, you trust Orangatango, and that trust is enforced by contract (and thus by law).
However, Orangatango does make you largely anonymous to the rest of the internet. Your IP address is hidden, your e-mail address is replaced by an anonymous forwarding address when you type it into forms, you get fine-grained control over cookies, etc.
