  • Bridges: Safe.
  • Non-Exit Relay: It's NOT illegal, but if you run it at your home you will have "issues".
  • Exit Relay: It sounds pretty much Okay, however you should take care and contact your ISP or VPS provider before. Read the Marco Civil da Internet!

Reported Issues:

  • access to 'Internet Banking' services might be blocked/denied;
  • resolve CAPTCHA challenges frequently.

Chile

  • Non-Exit Relay: No issues related.
  • Exit Relay: As intermediaries of content, operators don't hold responsibility of the content that goes through the relays. However, this doesn't prevent police from seizing machines as part of an ongoing investigation. The best approach would be to have transparency about the existence of an exit relay and take the appropriate technical safeguards.
