  • 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.
