The Site is open to anyone 13 years of age or older, but some of the INK361 Services are only available to registered members ("Members"). You can visit the Site without registering and we will consider you a "User."
When you become a Member, you agree to the following:

INK361 reserves the right to terminate your Membership at any time (even if you've paid), without warning for any or no reason, with or without prior notice or explanation and without liability, and can even take legal action if needed.
For example, please note that it is our policy to terminate the accounts of Members who repeatedly infringe the intellectual property rights of others. We have a similar policy for Members who violate these Terms or commit illegal acts using the Site or INK361 Services-although we may, in our discretion, instead deny, restrict or suspend access to all or any part of the Site or INK361 Services or terminate a Member's account when something similar occurs.

You'll be responsible for any damages that result from your breaking those promises as further outlined below.

- INK361 may ask you for other PII from time to time, such as contact information (like your mailing address and phone number), or demographic information (like your zip/postal code or region, hometown, gender, or education level).

We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifying information from any source as part of our use of the Google statistical analytics tool. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither ourselves nor Google will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user.
- Doubleclick ad servers. To serve advertisements on the Site, we make use of DoubleClick services, a Google company. These services are offered from out of the European Union. To serve the correct advertisements, we provide DoubleClick with location data. DoubleClick warrants safety and protection of the information provided as described in the "Safe Harbor" Privacy Principles and Google will only use this data to honor the agreement between Google and us. (Data will not be used by Google for own purpose)
- Do I have a choice? While you're not required to provide PII to visit the Site, many of our cool features may not be available to you if you choose not to create an account with us or, at other times, not to provide requested information.
How we use what we know
- How do we use PII? We use the PII we request at registration in order to provide you with the services offered on the Site, including image hosting and sharing. There are some circumstances when we will share PII with trusted third party business partners, which may include advertisers, and others:

- With other companies within our corporate family; and

- How do we use your information for advertising? INK361 will target advertising based on personal information provided by users and inferred from site usage. This may include gender, age, or geographic data. INK361 does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.

We may aggregate your PII with information about others. In that case we will make your information non-personally identifiable by removing your name and other characteristics that would identify it as you. We may use and/or share the resulting non-PII with third parties.
