  • What is the Iraq Network Privacy and Confidentiality policy?
    The Iraq Network privacy and confidentiality policy is very simple: All our content/data is hosted on, so any legal implications around content access, GDPR, legal requests, etc., is based on their policies We will never release any information to any government upon request, but that is superseded by policy above which that company may release based on their own legal requirements and policies Users should be aware that what they submit/post/contribute to the site is public information that anyone could analyse and use to identify the author - which is why we recommend posting anonymously with fake identities if you are submitting any content that could be used against you politically, in the community, or legally
  • What Languages Does the Iraq Network Use?
    The Iraq Network's language is English, to cover most users across varied backgrounds. Secondarily, we aim to translate many words and sections to Sorani Kurdish and Arabic, as these are the two prominent languages in Iraq and Kurdistan. Lastly, we hope to translate to other dialects and languages such as Badini/Kurmanji Kurdish, Turkmen/Turkish, Christian languages, and others. It is very difficult to facilitate these translations based on limitations of automation services/tools online, and also the Iraq Network team and their time and resources to manually translate each word or paragraph on the site which can change or update regularly. Sometimes this is also limited because we don't have a significant number of members who only speak or read in a particular language, which is why English is the focus language used here, as it covers most of the world. We apologise to all those users who don't have their own language represented, but we also would like your feedback on this topic on how to improve. If you would like to volunteer to translate sections to a particular language group, please contact us, we will recognise you in our updates, and can be a reference on your job applications.
