Privacy Notice

September 2019
Routago GmbH (Pforzheimer Str. 128b, 76275 Ettlingen, Germany) offers the Routago Assist app (the “app”).

Routago GmbH will only receive aggregated anonymized statistics on downloads, usage data, as well as special feedback on how to improve the app from the Apple AppStore and Google Play Store.

To provide the functions contained in the app (e.g. navigation, environmental information, or route recording), it is necessary to evaluate the GNSS position of the device being used. To provide navigation and environmental information, a transfer of the GNSS position to our servers in one of our European data centers is necessary. The transmission takes place via HTTPS encryption. The GNSS position is only stored and processed on our servers for the period of time required to calculate the routes. A permanent storage or processing and evaluation of the GNSS location or any other data will not take place. We also evaluate the number of steps for the optimized calculation of your position. The app therefore needs access to this data. This data is not transmitted over the radio network. Routago GmbH does not collect, store or process any personal data about you without your consent when you use the app (“personal data”).
If you have any questions about the processing of personal data or wish to exercise your privacy rights in this context, please contact In any case, you also have the right to file a complaint with the relevant data protection authorities.

Terms of use

Welcome to Routago Assist, the mobility assistant for the blind and visually impaired.

Routago GmbH (“Routago”) provides various functions with this software application (“App”): Persons can be guided from their current position to a destination by turn-by-turn navigation, receive environment information, routes record or detect obstacles via smartphone camera.

Installation or use of the App is subject to these Terms of Use.

The app is for your personal use and for people who live outside the US. Because laws and regulations vary from country to country, use of the app is at your own risk and under your own responsibility in your home country. This app is not a medical device. In particular, it is not a substitute for aids such as the “Blindenlangstock” or “Guide Dog” and may not be used for research, diagnostic, monitoring or treatment purposes. If you are unsure about the use of this app in relation to your health or your eye condition, please contact your doctor immediately. In particular, the app may not be used if you are suffering from a reduced responsiveness.

Routago GmbH monitors monthly user feedback on the respective distribution platforms (eg Apple AppStore, Google Play, etc.) to assess the performance of the app.

The app is designed to give assistance in real-life situations. However, it does not replace the human senses or your responsibility to use GNSS information with reasonable care. In particular, the GNSS location information may not be correct. The accuracy of GNSS sensor information is the sole responsibility of your mobile service provider and may vary based on environmental conditions. The accuracy is usually below 15 meters, but under certain circumstances, i.e. reflections or shading, even worse.
Information on route descriptions, intersections and other also depends on the availability of the internet connection, the available data and the correctness of the location of the GNSS sensor.

By using this app, you consent to us, Routago GmbH, disclaiming any liability for the GNSS information that you have received from your content provider, the accuracy of the information you use, and any associated use of the app. Likewise, you agree that we, the Routago GmbH, can not be held liable for any damage caused as a direct or future consequence of the use of the data or this app.

Please note that this app can use the tracking service in the background, if the navigation is set to a destination point. Using GNSS in the background or using object detection can greatly affect your device’s battery. Use these features only when needed.
This app uses OpenStreetMap to provide path and intersection information and other geo information. These providers collect data such as location information, map search, navigation requirements, IP address, device type, and operating system. By using this app, you also agree to their terms of use, privacy notices, etc.
Likewise, you agree that your GNSS position will be used by Routago GmbH to provide all app functions (such as navigation, environmental information, or route recording).
