Here are chess.com's rules:

https://www.chess.com/legal/fair-play

and https://support.chess.com/article/648-what-do-i-need-to-know-about-fair-play-on-chess-com

You would need to look up other sites to see what their rules are.

But in general, the rules are that in daily chess, static resources such as books, databases that do not show engine evaluations, etc., are permitted (research has always been considered a part of correspondence chess), but engine assistance in any form, advice from a friend, is strictly forbidden. In live chess, assistance of any form is strictly forbidden, just as it would be in an OTB event.

Using an engine to analyse a position can be done after the game is finished. It's a good idea to analyse your games after they are finished so you can learn from your mistakes. However, you generally do best if you do your own human analysis first and only use the engine to see what you missed.
