Welcome to Urban Archive ("Urban Archive," "we," "us" or "our"), the App that empowers you to learn about New York history where it happened.
The Service allows users to explore locations in New York City by using Urban Archive’s location-aware App, push notifications, and images from the historical collections of various institutions.
We collect information you directly give us. For example, we collect information about you when you sign up for our Service, participate in any interactive features of the Service, fill out a form, give feedback, ideas or submissions about the Service, communicate with us via third party social media sites, request customer support or otherwise communicate with us. The types of information we may collect include your email address, location information and any other information you choose to provide. For information as to how to restrict the collection of contact information, please see the "Your Choices" section below. If you choose not to provide certain information, we may not be able to provide the Service to you or certain features of the Service may be unavailable or work differently.
