We also use your Personal Information to protect our business (for example, against fraud), or to comply with legal requirements to which we are subject (for example, tax or financial reporting requirements).

We will always seek your consent before we send you any direct marketing communications.

You can change auto-update options by changing your settings within the Routers Connect Product account information.
