Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting. At Flarum, we are committed to safeguarding the privacy of all individuals who interact with us and our site(s) and service(s). Flarum ensures that we respect the privacy choices that you make. When we refer to ‘Flarum’, we are referring to the official sites of the Flarum community software and its support subsidiaries, including but not limited to the community forum, the documentation, the Flarum community discord and the Flarum site. This does not extend to official partners of Flarum, who are bound by their own privacy notices and controls. As a global entity, we take a consistent approach to protecting privacy across our international communities. This privacy notice applies wherever you are located and is based on European Union data protection principles (as contained within the EU's General Data Protection Regulation). In addition to these principles, some jurisdictions in which we operate have additional local privacy requirements. The terms of our local privacy notices take priority over the terms of this privacy notice in the event that they conflict. This is because we are committed to ensuring that we are fully compliant with regulations and the best practice in all of the locations in which we operate. This Privacy Notice outlines how we collect, use, disclose, and protect your personal information when you visit our official website and participate in the Flarum community.
