IRCNow supports user privacy by allowing users to connect to most services anonymously. No real name or phone number is required for most services, and users can often connect via tor.
However, services will require your email address. We will also log your IP address and other account metadata such as user agent information. We scan IP addresses for open proxies. This data is stored permanently to allow us to combat spam and abuse. If you have special privacy needs, you are welcome to contact staff for an exception. We can make privacy exceptions for users after an interview.
IRCNow does not sell any personal information to third-parties. However, IRCNow reserves the right to file abuse reports for users who maliciously abuse our network.
IRCNow will delete material that is proven to be libellous or illegal. Users may not publish personally identifiable information about another user without consent except to report those who have violated network rules.
