     32The exit relay is the final relay in the Tor circuit, the one that sends traffic out its destination. The service you are connecting to (website, chat service, email provider, etc) will see the IP address of the exit relay instead of your real IP address. Exit relays have the greatest legal exposure and liability of all the relays. For example, if a user downloads copyrighted material while using your exit relay, you the operator may receive a DMCA notice. Any abuse complaints about the exit will go directly to you. Generally, these complaints can be handled pretty easily through template letters, which we'll discuss more in the section below. Because of the legal exposure that comes with running an exit relay, we do not recommend running it from your home. Ideal exit relay operators are affiliated with some institution, like a university or a library. An institution can not only provide greater bandwidth for the exit, but is better positioned to handle abuse complaints or the rare law enforcement inquiry. Here are some [more tips https://blog.torproject.org/tips-running-exit-node] for running an exit relay with minimal difficulty.
