Uniswap collects certain data about its users
On its blog, Uniswap makes it clear that it does not collect “personal data, such as first and last names, postal addresses, dates of birth, email addresses or IP addresses“. It is after all on this that Uniswap made part of its reputation, no surprise in that
But other data is collected, and if it is not personal data, they are unique to particular users :
“[Les données] include public on-chain data as well as some limited off-chain data, such as device type, browser version, etc.»
According to Uniswap, this data is used to make informed decisions who “improve the user experience».

Monitoring of addresses used
In addition to these data collections, Uniswap confirms that it performs address monitoring who link to its services, in order to identify possible illicit transactions:
“We collect and store your address on the blockchain, which is publicly available, to learn about your use of the Services and to verify that your wallet has not been associated with illicit activities.»
It will be recalled that Uniswap had been part of the services who had blocked addresses linked to Tornado Cash. As a reminder, this cryptocurrency mixer had been subject to sanctions from the United States. The DEX therefore shows that if it offers relative anonymity to its users, it intends to continue to submit to certain injunctions.
