NoFap’s forum is home to a diverse range of backgrounds, sexual orientations, world viewpoints, and personality traits. While NoFap expects a level of maturity and good-will from everyone who uses NoFap’s services and has rules set out to reflect this, there will still be conflicting opinions and undesirable situations that may arise. Even though NoFap has a team of moderators to oversee user-to-user communication across the NoFap platform, you are still dealing with the general worldwide public and will need to take responsibility for how you approach this for your own benefit and enjoyment.
Usage of NoFap’s forum constitutes agreement to abide by all posted rules, available at https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.php?threads/nofaps-forum-posting-rules-and-etiquette-guidelines.121256/. These rules act as an addendum to this user agreement.
The moderation team does its best to keep the forums a lively and constructive place for the process of overcoming pornography addiction and reaching other sexual health goals. NoFap is open to feedback, and even criticism, about actions taken by the moderation team. However, in whatever situations that arise, NoFap’s staff has final authority on all interpretations of how posted rules should be enforced in any and all situations that may arise on NoFap’s services.
While NoFap makes a good-faith effort to do so, NoFap cannot guarantee that moderation coverage will be even or consistent. The moderation team reserves the right to direct its resources as it sees best fit. The moderation team has final authority in how it moderates and interprets the forum rules, and reserves the full rights of the powers granted by NoFap in this User Agreement as part of NoFap’s team.

MENTAL HEALTH DISCLAIMER
If you are suffering from any kind of mental illness, diagnosed by a mental healthcare professional or not, you may only use NoFap’s services under the care of your local licensed mental healthcare provider.
NoFap’s forums and other services by NoFap are to be used at your own risk. NoFap is not a mental healthcare provider. NoFap’s team members cannot be expected to be trained or qualified to give mental health counseling or any kind of mental health care. If you have a diagnosed mental health issue, or even suspect that you may have one, you must discuss your use of NoFap’s services with a mental healthcare professional, such as a clinical psychologist, and only use it under their expressed recommendation, guidance, and/or supervision.
NoFap cannot and will not be held responsible for your reaction to any content on the NoFap platform.

If you are in need of immediate medical care, do not use NoFap. Go to your nearest hospital or medical facility to get the treatment and medical advice you require. If your health concerns are not immediate, but still pressing, consult with a medical professional before participating in NoFap’s programs and only continue using the NoFap platform under this professional’s guidance.
If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, do not attempt to treat the problem using the NoFap platform; contact appropriate emergency services immediately.
If you are considering suicide or self-harm, seek help immediately. A trained professional can provide you with the help you need in a discreet and confidential manner. Contact a crisis hotline, local law enforcement, or your primary care physician, who will be able to direct you to local services that can help you with your feelings of depression and despair.
Other situations where getting immediate help is necessary are listed below:
- If you have thoughts of killing (or otherwise harming) yourself or others;
- If you are gravely disabled (unable to care for yourself), physically or mentally;

This includes content posted by the NoFap’s team as well as content posted by NoFap’s users. This also includes personal information.

This only applies to messages publically posted on the platform. Personally identifiable information, including names, locations, or contact information, is always removed, should NoFap share any post.
COLLECTION OF USER DATA
You agree not to collect any personal information from other users of NoFap for any reason, with the only exception being to develop and carry on accountability partner relationships and one-on-one friendships off-site. Such information includes but is not limited to email addresses, telephone numbers, social media accounts, physical addresses, names, physical location, or any other information that could be used to identify or contact an individual outside of the NoFap platform.
If a user of NoFap wishes to share such information with you, they are free to do so, but you agree not to solicit any such information from other NoFap’s users.
You agree to not use NoFap to market for any purpose. You agree to not use any personal contact information that was shared to you by other users or visitors of NoFap to market any company, service, campaign, initiative, commercial or non-commercial, for-profit or nonprofit, owned or operated or affiliated by yourself or any other entity that you are in communication with, now or in the future.
While most people use our website for free, users may opt-in to paid memberships for various services that NoFap offers. Memberships are billed on a monthly basis. After you sign up, you will be charged the indicated amount. One month later, you will be charged again, every month, until cancelled. By signing up for a paid subscription, you agree to be billed accordingly every month until your subscription is terminated by you or NoFap. You will keep receiving the service that you purchased until you or NoFap terminates your subscription. If you stop paying monthly subscription fees, either deliberately, through a declined card charge, through an expired card, etc, you will lose access to whichever service you purchased. NoFap reserves the right to refuse service, ban you from our services, or cancel your subscription for any reason.
Subscription payments, once processed, are not refundable. However, you may cancel your membership at any time to avoid any future billing. If you would like to cancel, you agree to contact Support and telling NoFap to cancel your billing by opening up a Support Ticket at NoFap.com/support at least one week prior to the next renewal date to avoid future billing.
GROUP ACCOUNTABILITY CALLS
NoFap hosts “group accountability calls,” which may be signed up for at NoFap.com/groups. If you choose to join groups, you agree to the following terms:
You agree to maintain the confidentiality of other group members’ personal information. During calls, sensitive information is often shared. You will not record meetings in any way, take notes about other people’s progress, attempt to personally identify people, or attempt to contact people outside of the calls without permission from the other person who you want to communicate with. The terms of this agreement shall survive for the entirety that you are in attendance of NoFap’s accountability calls. Should you violate this confidentiality clause, you agree to the jurisdiction of Pennsylvania for any legal action between yourself and NoFap, and that the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and costs of enforcing this confidentiality clause.
You are not a member of the press, of the porn industry, a researcher, or otherwise attending groups without the intention of seeking accountability support to aide in recovery from compulsive porn use. This is a recovery community. For the privacy of our members, the press, or in general, people who want to “research” how our groups run, must receive written permission from NoFap to attend one of our group sessions. Furthermore, all of those in attendance of the group will need to agree for your attendance.
You will not use our accountability groups as a replacement for mental healthcare. Re-stated again, as discussed in other parts of this User Agreement, NoFap is not a replacement to mental healthcare. NoFap is not mental healthcare. You understand that group facilitators are enthusiastic peers similar to you, not mental healthcare professionals. These groups are intended to provide accountability and support, similar to Alcoholics Anonymous but online, and is not an end-all be-all cure for compulsive porn use. As a first line measure, you should seek out the services of a mental healthcare professional, then join groups for additional comrade and support. By signing up for Groups and attending Groups, you are acknowledging that you are paying to connect with peers who are pursuing common goals for motivation and support and not paying for mental healthcare, counseling, or therapy. By attending accountability groups, you agree to waive all claims against NoFap LLC or our call facilitators for any advice that I receive or any actions that I may take as a result of attending accountability groups.
NoFap cannot make guarantees as to how groups will impact your progress. Results vary. For some people, adding in the supportive community can be a game changer in their recovery, while for others, while beneficial and uplifting, it doesn’t have too much of an effect on how much they are able to successfully stay away from porn. We cannot make any guarantees about whether joining the Groups program will help you to reach your individually-elected sexual health goals, success is based on a wide variety of factors, including factors that are within your control and not NoFap’s.
Your confidentiality, unfortunately, can’t be guaranteed by NoFap. As these calls occur online and are open to a global audience, unfortunately we can offer no guarantees that your personal information is entirely confidential in these calls. While NoFap makes a good faith effort to ensure that all Group members have agreed to our User Agreement, you should still take reasonable steps to protect your own privacy, such as not revealing personally-identifiable information about yourself, such as your name, company that you work at, or location, during the calls. NoFap may record or monitor calls for quality assurance purposes, but won’t release or broadcast your voice or text chat on any medium. NoFap agrees to hold your personal information confidential. Without explicit written permission, NoFap will not publicly discuss or publish personal information disclosed to us during group calls, such as your name, email address, or city. However, if information is disclosed to us that reveals that another person is in danger of violence or sexual exploitation, NoFap, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to report to law enforcement as mandated by law.
You agree to follow facilitator direction and follow all posted call rules. Before joining calls, you will be provided with a list of policies and best practices. Call facilitators might add rules or remove rules at their own discretion and, in general, run the calls how they feel will be the most beneficial for the particular group. Call facilitators may remove people if they repeatedly refuse to follow facilitator direction and/or disrupt the calls for other attendees.
NoFap may contact you via email to correspond regarding your membership. You are responsible for checking your email inbox for invitations to join the accountability group sessions. We email invitations out once per month. If you do not see the email, check your spam folder. If you still cannot locate your call invitations, contact Support at NoFap.com/support.
After you sign up, NoFap will make a good faith effort to quickly place you into a recurring group session. However, this process may take up to two weeks (although this process usually takes less than one week). NoFap sends you a survey to ask you when you are available. If you do not respond to this survey, NoFap will randomly assign you to a group.
NoFap reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your access to the Site and the related services or any portion thereof at any time, without notice. To the maximum extent permitted by law, this agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Pennsylvania and you hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of courts in Pennsylvania in all disputes arising out of or relating to the use of the Site. Use of the Site is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these Terms, including, without limitation, this section.
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and NoFap as a result of this agreement or use of the Site. NoFap’s performance of this agreement is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in this agreement is in derogation of NoFap’s right to comply with governmental, court and law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of the Site or information provided to or gathered by NoFap with respect to such use.

Unless otherwise specified herein, this agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the user and NoFap with respect to the Site and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between the user and NoFap with respect to the Site. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent an d subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
