INFORMATION RTS GATHERS AND TRACKS
RTS gathers two types of information about users:

·Information RTS gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers' needs and better understand the demographics of our audience. Under no circumstances does RTS divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
RTS Gathers User Information In The Following Processes:
1. Electronic newsletters policy (Dispatches)
We will offer a free electronic newsletter to users. RTS gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters at the time of registration.
RTS may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
RTS tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. RTS does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
RTS sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that users enter in our Search function. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
USE OF INFORMATION
RTS uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our network of sites, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
As stated above, we use information that users provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in polls, surveys, message boards, and forums. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. RTS never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.

·Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters.
