Collection of Your Personal Information
Character Ink collects user information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. Online businesses, including CI, collect anonymous demographic information that is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests, and favorites.

This information is used by us (and all online businesses) for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of our site.
Character Ink encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from my site so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use, and share your information. Character Ink is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of ours.
