Important Policy Updates

Hi folks! It’s Important Announcement DayTM again: we’re updating our Terms of Service, Paid Services Terms, Privacy Policy, and Community Guidelines! These changes go into effect on April 15, 2024.

We regularly review our policies to ensure we're surfacing important information to our users in a clear and easy-to-understand way. As we continually work to improve our services, respond to new laws, and protect your privacy, we periodically update these policies to reflect those priorities and our commitments to each other.

Here are some highlights of what we’ve updated:

  • How we describe our services: We added more detail about how Discord works and what you can expect from us – from how users communicate, to features that highlight content or activity on Discord. We want Discord to be your experience.
  • Regulatory updates around the world: Some of the updates are in response to new laws such as the EU’s Digital Services Act. We have updated our Terms to comply with these laws and created new resources to provide extra transparency about how Discord works and your control over your experience. 
  • How we resolve disputes: We’ve updated our informal dispute resolution process and added new information to comply with laws available to users who reside in the European Economic Area.
  • How we approach privacy: We provided more information about privacy rights and how they are exercised, including creating dedicated pages for more detail about privacy rights in different countries. We have also updated you on the data we collect and how we use it. We take user privacy seriously and these changes reflect our commitment to user transparency.
  • More detail in our Community Guidelines: Our Community Guidelines are central to how we work to keep you safe and make Discord the best place to hang out with your friends. We’ve added links throughout the Guidelines to individual policies that help you better understand how we make decisions and what you can expect from us.

You can find a summary of the changes at the links below, but please do read the revised policies, as they are what actually govern your use of Discord:
