For users in the European Economic Area, please click here for information that is specific to you.

What options do I have?

If you are not comfortable with your CurseForge account information being transferred at the time of the transition, you may “opt out” of having your account information transferred before the transition date. You may opt out by [opt-out mechanism]. If you do opt out in advance of the transition date, Overwolf will not receive your account information.

If you opt out, then for a limited period of time after the transfer of the CurseForge sites/services to Overwolf, you will be able to change your mind and provide consent for Twitch to send your personal data to Overwolf, which (when complete) should restore your account in its entirety. We will provide more details about this process as it is finalized.

If you opt out, all attribution on your projects and public posts will be removed and replaced with “Forge_User_[RandomNumber]”. If you choose to restore your account by opting-in again within the limited period discussed above, it is our goal that that attribution will be re-appended and you will have your collection of posts and site contributions just as it existed prior to the transfer. If you would like a particular project or post removed, please delete them before the transfer date.

As part of their commitment to data privacy, Overwolf will treat any of your data that is transferred over (for example, your account information) in accordance with their privacy policy. Overwolf’s Privacy Policy is located here: https://www.overwolf.com/legal/privacy
