Here are some simplified explanations to save you from the trouble. This update of our documentation was made to further reassure transparency towards our users, to comply with applicable laws to the best of our abilities, and to make it more convenient for all of us to use Lemmy.World safely.
The Changes Made to the Terms of Service
- Section 8 was updated to refer to our new documents.
- Section 5 was updated to further accommodate some of our communities, which were requesting exemptions from the previous version.
- The minimum age was raised from 16 to 18.
We don't collect any real data from you. The only actual data we do collect are your username, password, the e-mail address you provide, and your Internet Protocol(IP) address.
We will never share your data with anyone for any reason, unless you do illegal stuff.
What's the Fair Use Policy?
The Fair Use Policy defines the main user and bot rules, and it is made so that rules of conduct and participation are easier for our users to read and access.
