    Interesting question, did you read cloudflares TOS?

    I would imagine they would remove content ASAP, as they would be hosting illegal content for you.

    Just contact them and ask -
    Are you OK with hosting (adult?) content?
    How do you handle DMCA requests?

    My BIGGEST concern is not DMCA, or take downs... the question is -
    "Will these guys hand over my personal information to 3rd parties who want to sue me?"

    Cloudflare is US based service, so I guess answer is NO. But it doesn't hurt to ask.
