Right to Privacy

Users have a right to be secure from unreasonable searches of their personal information and data. Search warrants can be given only upon probable cause where the data to be searched and seized are described.

IRCNow supports anonymity and privacy. Our network allow users to connect anonymously. Users do not have to provide us with their real name, phone number, or ID to register and use services. We support cryptography such as TLS, ssh, PGP, and cryptocoins. We allow access from Tor. We provide VPN services.

Each local server sets its own privacy policy. Each server can collect user data to provide extra features, prevent abuse, and to ensure security. Each server has the freedom to set its own privacy policy, and users in turn can pick the privacy policy and server staff they like best.
