Your Privacy is Critically Important
Like most website operators, Routes collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Routes's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Routes's visitors use its website. From time to time, Routes may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Routes also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on http://www.routes.com blog posts. Routes only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Routes's websites choose to interact with Routes in ways that require Routes to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Routes gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at http://www.routes.com to provide a username and email address.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Routes will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Routes discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Routes believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Routes, third parties or the public at large.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Routes takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
