Hello friends,

We have updated the OONI Data Policy: https://ooni.org/about/data-policy/

The latest version (1.4.0) of the OONI Data Policy includes the
following changes:

* We now use our own ASN database (following the changes to MaxMind's

*  You can no longer opt out of submitting country code information
(e.g. "IT" for Italy), as this significantly limits the value of
measurements (i.e. we have no idea where a test was run)

* We use a self-hosted analytics platform on our websites and OONI Probe
apps in order to better understand how our apps are used, improve our
understanding of user needs, improve OONI tools, and better serve the
OONI community. You can opt out of our use of analytics by disabling the
collection of app usage statistics in the OONI Probe app settings (and
you can opt out of our use of analytics on ooni.org and
explorer.ooni.org by unchecking the opt-out box at the end of our Data

* In our Data Policy, we have added a section on the collection of app
usage statistics

* In our Data Policy, we have added a section where we disclose what
information we will collect if you opt in to push notifications

* OONI measurements are openly published by default, but we will not
publish data related to app analytics and push notification support
(which is securely stored separately from the public measurement metadb)

Happy to address any questions you may have.
