SUMMARY

There’s a lot of legalese below that we were advised to have on the site. For us, the gist of it is this: we created Agora to be different from other websites with regards to user privacy. We use Django, a cutting-edge web framework utilised by companies like Pinterest and Instagram, which was built with security in mind. We also won’t sell your email address, reveal sensitive personal info, or spam your account. Full stop. And if you ever want to have your account deleted, just send us an email at team@joinagora.com.
