Quora recognizes that our users' privacy is important, and we take it very seriously. Quora will only consider a request for disclosure of data relating to a particular user if the request is made by a government entity, in accordance with applicable law and legal process.
In the United States, law enforcement seeking the disclosure of data about a particular user, such as name, email, and IP address, must obtain a validly issued subpoena or court order. If law enforcement in the United States is seeking the disclosure of private communications between users on Quora or a user's post not public on Quora, a warrant from a U.S. Court must be obtained.
For international law enforcement requests, foreign law enforcement must follow the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty under applicable circumstances.
Quora does not connect anonymously posted content with specific user accounts and, as such, does not have identifiable information associated with anonymously posted content. More information about how anonymity works on the Quora platform can be found here: How does anonymity on Quora work?
Foreign law enforcement requests can be sent to LER@quora.com and must originate from the official email address of the government or law enforcement agency requesting disclosure. United States law enforcement requests must be served to Quora's registered agent for process; a courtesy copy may be sent to LER@quora.com.
Quora will endeavor to provide the affected user with notice about the request via email, so long as it is not prohibited from doing so by law and/or is not an emergency. For more details, see Will Quora notify users about requests for user data from governmental entities, including law enforcement?
