Avinu Malkenu on voluntary fasts

Question:

In Ashkenazic tradition, if one takes upon himself a ta’anit yakhid, may he recite Avinu Malkenu as part of its observance?—or is it strictly a prayer for ta’aniyot tsibur?

Answer:

One can recite the Avinu Malkenu prayer even though he prays by himself.
