Hey I'm using torch for a couple of months now and you kinda freaked me out with what you said so I did some searching and that's what I found- http://support.torchbrowser.com/Knowledgebase/List/Index/3/faq
Thay say- "Torch does not automatically collect any private data on or through our website, except when you voluntarily provide it through your communications with us".
anyway, I didn't get any unusual ads or stuff, other than the regular ones (FB, etc.).
bottom line- torch is great and I'm not so worried.
