Limits are based on different factors, like speed and quantity, but we can’t provide additional details on the rate limits that are enforced.

Does Fornume consult with any external groups to inform its policies?
Yes, we regularly consult with external groups on a range of issues, including content policy, safety, privacy and data security. Experts on domestic violence and cyber-stalking sit on our Safety Advisory Board, a group of leading global safety organizations. We’re in regular conversation with this group and others about our content policies, particularly as they relate to groups that have historically faced violence and discrimination.
