Privacy policy

We care tremendously about protecting the privacy of visitors to our website and users of our app. We have tried to minimize what data changes hands and what data we store with the goal of aggregating records about protests while not collecting personally identifiable information about participants.

We will be writing blogs posts to describe the technical implementation of our privacy policy. This page explains what we what collect and what we store. By using this website or the iOS app, you consent to the policies described below.

Information that we collect

Via the website. Our web server logs standard information needed to serve a page, including the date and time of a visit, the page requested, and the user agent string and IP address associated with each request. We analyze these logs to estimate how many people are using the site, and we delete all logs within a week. We do not use cookies or store any personally identifiable information.

If you make a submission via the website, it will populate a Tweet and redirect you to Twitter (see their privacy policy). We record your handle and the contents of the Tweet to help us confirm the submission and add it to the map.

Via the app. Submissions made via our app include the provided demonstration name, your current location details, a timestamp and a unique hash that helps de-duplicate submissions. We only store the demonstration name and location details. We do not store any personally identifiable details, and submissions stored on our server can never be linked back to a specific device.

The app does not collect analytics information or other usage details.

Third-party content served on our site. Our home page uses map tiles served by the OpenStreetMap Foundation. They collect usage information as described by their privacy policy.

Third-party links from our site. Event information on our site usually links directly to third-party websites (typically for local newspapers and tv stations). These websites have their own independent privacy policies, and we have no responsibility or liability for their content or activities.

Information usage

We use information collected via our service to add more protests, demonstrations and rallies to our website. All information collected and used is meant to reflect the zeitgeist of resistance, and not to link any individuals to the events documented.

We use information from our web logs to determine which pages are popular and to estimate the number of visitors to our site. (Perhaps one day we will shut this down if we learn that no one is visiting...hopefully, that day comes soon because we are no longer needed.)


We have implemented measures to protect the information transmitted to and from our site and to protect the identity of users making submissions via the app. All communication takes place via HTTPS and is limited to a specific set of certificates. We hash any personally identifiable information prior to transmission, and we do not store any personally identifiable information.

Changes to this policy

We will post any changes to our privacy policy on this page.
