Any data we collect is used primarily to provide our services, which are focused on allowing people to come together and form communities, the vast majority of which are public. If you have questions about how we use your data, you can always ask us for more information.
We use information about you to:
Much of the information on the Services is public and accessible to everyone, even without an account. By using the Services, you are directing us to share this information publicly and freely.
When you submit content (including a post, comment, chat message, or broadcast) to a public part of the Services, any visitors to and users of our Services will be able to see that content, the username associated with the content, and the date and time you originally submitted the content. Although some parts of the Services may be private or quarantined, they may become public (e.g., at the moderator's option in the case of private communities) and you should take that into consideration before posting to the Services.
Your Atlas account has a profile page that is public or private. Your profile contains information about your activities on the Services, such as your username, prior questions and answers, other posts, links, trophies, and how long you have been a member of the Services. You can also choose for your profile to include the content you upvote..
We do not sell your personal information. However, in addition to the personal information that is displayed publicly as described above, we may share personal information in the following ways:
We take measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. For example, we use HTTPS while information is being transmitted. We also enforce technical and administrative access controls to limit which of our employees have access to nonpublic personal information.
You can help maintain the security of your account by configuring two-factor authentication.
We store the information we collect for as long as it is necessary for the purpose(s) for which we originally collected it. We may retain certain information for legitimate business purposes or as required by law.
You have choices about how to protect and limit the collection, use, and sharing of information about you when you use the Services. Depending on where you live, you may also have the right to request access to or ability to port, deletion/erasure of, or correction/rectification of, your personal information, to opt out of certain advertising practices, or to withdraw consent for processing where you have previously provided consent. Below we explain how to exercise each of these rights. Atlas does not discriminate against users for exercising their rights under data protection laws.
If you have questions or are not able to submit a request to exercise your rights using the mechanisms above, you may also email us at to email@example.com from the email address that you have verified with your Atlas account.
Before we process a request from you about your personal information, we need to verify the request via your access to your Atlas account or to a verified email address associated with your Atlas account. If we deny your request, you may appeal our decision by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Users in the European Economic Area have the right to request access to, rectification of, or erasure of their personal data; to data portability in certain circumstances; to request restriction of processing; to object to processing; and to withdraw consent for processing where they have previously provided consent. These rights can be exercised as described in the "Your Rights and Choices section above. EEA users also have the right to lodge a complaint with their local supervisory authority.
As required by applicable law, we collect and process information about individuals in the EEA only where we have a legal basis for doing so. Our legal bases depend on the Services you use and how you use them. We process your information on the following legal bases:
Atlas Labs, LLC. is based in the United States and we process and store information on servers located in the United States. We may store information on servers and equipment in other countries depending on a variety of factors, including the locations of our users and service providers. By accessing or using the Services or otherwise providing information to us, you consent to the processing, transfer, and storage of information in and to the U.S. and other countries, where you may not have the same rights as you do under local law.
When we transfer the personal data of users in the EEA, UK and/or Switzerland, we rely on the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission for such transfers or other transfer mechanisms deemed ‘adequate' under applicable laws.
The California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA”), as amended, requires us to provide California residents with some additional information, which we address in this section.
In the last 12 months, we collected the following categories of personal information from California residents, depending on the Services used:
You can find more information about (a) what we collect and sources of that information in the "Information We Collect” section of this notice, (b) the business and commercial purposes for collecting that information in the "How We Use Your Information” section, and (c) the categories of third parties with whom we share that information in the "How We Share Information” section.
If you are a California resident, you have additional rights under the CCPA, including the right to opt out of any sales or sharing of your personal information, to request access to and information about our data practices, and to request deletion or correction of your personal information, as well as the right not to be discriminated against for exercising your privacy rights. Atlas does not "sell” or "share” personal information as those terms are defined under the CCPA. We do not use or disclose sensitive personal information except to provide you the Services or as otherwise permitted by the CCPA.
You may exercise your rights to access, delete, or correct your personal information as described in the "Your Rights and Choices” section of this notice. When you make a request, we will verify your identity by asking you to sign into your account or if necessary by requesting additional information from you. You may also make a rights request using an authorized agent. If you submit a rights request from an authorized agent who does not provide a valid power of attorney, we may ask the authorized agent to provide proof that you gave the agent signed permission to submit the request to exercise rights on your behalf. In the absence of a valid power of attorney, we may also require you to verify your own identity directly with us or confirm to us that you otherwise provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request. If you have any questions or concerns, you may reach us using the methods described under Your Rights and Choices or by emailing us at email@example.com.
Children under the age of 13 are not allowed to create an account or otherwise use the Services. Additionally, if you are located outside the United States, you must be over the age required by the laws of your country to create an account or otherwise use the Services, or we need to have obtained verifiable consent from your parent or legal guardian.

1. Atlas Account Subscription
Atlas is a subscription membership. When you purchase an Atlas Account, you expressly agree that you are authorizing recurring payments, and that payments will be made to Atlas by the payment method and at the recurring intervals (monthly or annually) you have agreed to, until the subscription is canceled by you or by Atlas.
You can manage your Atlas subscription and Payment Information by accessing your Account’s user settings or via your mobile app. We automatically process your Payment Information on the calendar day corresponding to the start of your subscription. If your subscription starts on a day not contained in the next month, you will be billed on the last day of that month. Mobile renewal processing dates may vary subject to any additional third-party terms. If your Payment Information is declined, you must provide new Payment Information or your Atlas subscription will be canceled. If you provide new Payment Information and are successfully charged, your new subscription period will be based on the original renewal date and not the date of the successful charge.
You can cancel your Atlas subscription at any time. Your subscription automatically renews (each month or year) unless you cancel at least 24 hours before your subscription period ends. To cancel your subscription, follow the instructions in your Account’s user settings. If you purchased an Atlas Account Subscription using your Apple ID, you can cancel your subscription through your device’s Account Settings or in the Manage Subscriptions section of the Apple App Store. If you purchased an Atlas Account Subscription using Google Play, you can cancel your subscription by visiting the Subscriptions section of Google Play. Your subscription will remain active from the time you cancel until the end of your current billing period, and you will not receive a refund or credit for any remaining days in your current billing period. You acknowledge at the end of your subscription, you will lose access to all features associated with an Atlas Account Subscription including, without limitation, any features enabling you to save or store content or data exclusive to an Atlas Account Subscription.
2. Paid Services Obtained Through Third Parties
If you obtain an Atlas Account subscription via a third party (e.g., Google Play, Apple App Store), that purchase may be further subject to the third party’s terms as agreed between you and such third party. For Paid Services purchases obtained via a third party, your billing relationship will be directly with the applicable third party. Any fees charged for your Atlas Account Subscription will be billed by the applicable third party using the payment information you have provided to such third party.
3. Suspension and Termination
As stated in Atlas’ User Agreement and Content Policy, you must follow and comply with the rules of the platform. Failure to do so may constitute a breach of these Terms and result in a temporary or permanent ban from Atlas. In such instances, you might lose the benefits of an Atlas Account Subscription and we will not compensate you for this loss.
If you reside in the EEA, United Kingdom, or Switzerland, you have the right to withdraw from the Atlas Account Subscription Agreement within fourteen (14) calendar days without giving reasons. The withdrawal period is fourteen (14) calendar days from the date of conclusion of the Atlas Account Subscription Agreement. To exercise your right of withdrawal, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org. You acknowledge by entering into a subscription for an Atlas Account, you have expressly requested and consented that your Atlas Account Subscription commence immediately at which point your right to withdrawal is lost.
Atlasis a vast network of questions, answers, and other content that are created, run, and populated by you, the Atlas users.
Through these interactions, you can ask, answer, vote, ,like, link, discuss, learn, debate, support, and connect with people who share your interests, and we encourage you to find—or even create—your home on Atlas.
While not every interaction or piece of content may be for you (and you may find some unrelatable or even offensive), no posting should be used as a weapon. Users should create a positive environment for their fellow users, not try to diminish it for others. Likewise, everyone on Users should have an expectation of privacy and safety, so please respect the privacy and safety of others.
Below the rules governing each community are the platform-wide rules that apply to everyone on Atlas. These rules are enforced by us, the admins.
Atlas can only exist if we operate by a shared set of rules. We ask that you abide by not just the letter of these rules, but the spirit as well.
Remember everyone is a human. Atlas is a place for learning and positivity, not for attacking or marginalizing people. Everyone has a right to use Atlas free of harassment, bullying, and threats of violence. Users that incite violence or that promote hate based on identity or vulnerability will be banned.
Abide by community rules. Post authentic content where you have a personal interest, and do not cheat or engage in content manipulation (including spamming, vote manipulation, ban evasion, or subscriber fraud) or otherwise interfere with or disrupt the Atlas user experience.
Respect the privacy of others. Instigating harassment, for example by revealing someone’s personal or confidential information, is not allowed. Never post or threaten to post intimate or sexually-explicit media of someone without their consent.
Do not post or encourage the posting of sexual or suggestive content involving minors.
Don’t impersonate an individual or an entity in a misleading or deceptive manner.
Properly label content that is graphic, sexually-explicit, or offensive.
Keep it legal, and avoid posting illegal content or soliciting or facilitating illegal or prohibited transactions.
Don’t break the site or do anything that interferes with normal use of Atlas.
We have a variety of ways of enforcing our rules, including, but not limited to
