First off, I've never personally been on AQstats and tried going there (but the page won't load for some reason and it says the site is up and there is nothing about it saying it has gone down or anything).
Anyways, from what I've read is that as long as I don't go there myself, my character information cannot be seen by others. Can someone confirm this for me?

Confirmed true or not, I'm still planning to be quite cautious when using AQ Elite.
