Transactions made using Liberty Reserve causes information, including IP address, to be shared with Amazon AWS and visits are tracked using Google Analytics.  

LR digital currency is sometimes used with exchanges when buying or selling Bitcoins.

Is Liberty Reserve not familiar with the security risks to their customers of giving Amazon access to their customer's computers?

I fail to see the issue. With Google's code, they aren't given any context as to what you use LR for, just that you visited. However, I'm suprised that LR would want this information logged at all (through Google or otherwise), given that it opens legal liabilities.

As for the Amazon script, it is of no concern. If Amazon were to tamper with that script, they would literally lose almost every AWS customer they have, many of which are large companies. This would amount to millions of dollars lost. This is BEFORE you take into account the damage to their brand.
