Like most website operators, 1600 Avenue 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. 1600 Avenue's goal in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how 1600 Avenue’s visitors use its website. From time to time, 1600 Avenue may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
1600 Avenue also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blog posts. 1600 Avenue only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
1600 Avenue discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on 1600 Avenue's behalf or to provide services available at 1600 Avenue's website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

If you are a registered user of and have supplied your email address, 1600 Avenue may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with 1600 Avenue and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. 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. 1600 Avenue takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

What We Do & Do Not Collect
A. What we collect through Priv-The App
Nothing about users. Priv-The App (mobile app) does not track or store user data. Our apps and browser extensions run locally on the user’s device and stores all logs on the user’s device for displaying stats. These logs are cleared daily as part of our local house-keeping routine on our apps. For our browser extensions for PCs, the user can set the stats & logs to be deleted when they close the browser.
If you choose to become a 1600 Avenue or Priv Community subscriber (Patreon), we ask you to provide personal details (Name, email address) and the payment details in case you would like to either become a member of our Priv Community through Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/policy), or to donate on our website via PayPal (https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/ua/legalhub-full). When you use the payment gateways, you will have to agree to their privacy policies and terms (links provided). Please contact them or visit their websites for full disclosure and information.
This information is retained for up to 90 days after the membership is cancelled. If we need to contact you regarding the Site, the Service, or your account, your email may be used to contact you. If you send us an e-mail, we will retain it and any response we provide in order to handle any follow-up questions you may have, and to measure how effectively we address your concerns. We retain this limited information only for as long as is necessary depending on the reason for your submission.
B. Personally Identifiable Information that you volunteer
C. Non-Personally Identifiable Information
In order to help ensure our proxy and VPN services are functioning properly, we look at aggregate traffic information at all our server locations. This does not have any personally identifiable information about you or any member. Additionally, when a member reports a suspect website on the SpyderWebTM inside our browser controller, only the IP address of the suspect website and the URL they are linked to is transmitted to our development partner (Redmorph). We do not track or store the sender’s information.
We only use session cookies when you visit the Site. A cookie is a small, unique text file that a website can send to your computer hard drive when you visit a website. Session cookies expire when you close your browser. Cookies allow us to provide visitors to our Site with certain conveniences, such as remembering your login details and hence delivering content specific to your membership.
Updates and GeoIP
Priv-The App and browser extensions we use ping the Redmorph server to ensure it has the latest tracker definitions, app rules and policies. We do not monitor or record any user information. When the user uses the GeoIP and MapView features inside Priv-The App and used browser extensions, the IP addresses that the websites, apps and user’s device are connecting with are sent to a database as a query for getting geoip data. Nor 1600 Avenue or our development partner, Redmorph, record or store this data.
