What We Collect
DayHikingTrails.com collects information in two categories:

Collection of Non-Personally Identifying Information

Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the website. The Site may also gather anonymous aggregate traffic data that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful for improving the content we offer.
In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyze this data. From time to time, we may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the website.
We also collect potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users leaving comments on the DayHikingTrails.com blog.
We only disclose commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
