History + Data tracking

Does Adblock track history/data in Incognito mode? Chrome warned me about allowing adblock in incognito mode because addons can track history. Does adblock do this? I know there is a option for it upfront, but is there any other data it might be sending?

    Hi Plasma,

    Whether in incognito mode or "cognito" mode, the only information AdBlock gathers is the minimum needed to block ads on web pages you visit and standard data provided by Google Analytics (your browser and version, your browser language and country of origin, etc.). None of it is personally identifiable, and we don't store it anywhere.

    Does this answer your question sufficiently? If not, I can ask our developer for a more comprehensive list.
