Scope of this Privacy Policy

Tlon Corporation ('Tlon,' 'we,' 'our,' and/or 'us') values the privacy of individuals who use Tlon Hosting, Urbit software, our websites, and other Tlon offerings and related services (collectively, our 'Services'). This privacy policy (the 'Privacy Policy') explains how we collect, use, and share information from users of our Services ('Users'). By using our Services, you understand and agree to the collection, use, disclosure, and procedures this Privacy Policy describes. Beyond the Privacy Policy, your use of our Services is also subject to our Terms of Service.

Your privacy matters

At Tlon, we care about your privacy and believe that ownership, privacy and control don’t need to be sacrificed in exchange for usability, accessibility and reliability. That’s why we limit our collection and use of your personally identifiable information (“PII”) to what’s necessary to provide our Services to you, unless you give us your consent.

Information we collect

We may collect a variety of information from or about you or your devices from various sources, as described below. We collect information: 1) when you provide it to us or give us permission to collect it; and 2) automatically, when you interact with the Services.

Information you provide to us

Address Space Information. When you acquire Urbit address space from Tlon, you voluntarily provide us with certain information, such as your name and email. You may also provide us with your Ethereum wallet address and public key.

Communications. If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you. For example, when you chat with us in Urbit or contact support, we may receive your email address, the contents of a message or attachments that you may send to us, and other information you choose to provide.

We strive to give our users meaningful choices and control regarding their personal information. All of our users have the following rights:

How long we keep your information

We keep your information for as long as necessary to enable you to use our Services and to fulfill the purposes described in this policy. This is also true for anyone that we share your information with that provides services on our behalf. When we no longer need your information and there is no need to keep it to comply with our legal obligation, we’ll delete your personal information from our systems, or depersonalize it so that we can’t identify you.

Third parties

The Services may contain links to other websites, products, or services that Tlon does not own or operate. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these third parties. We encourage you to read their privacy policies before providing any information to them.

Additionally, when you use our Services, and in particular, the Interface, you are interacting with the Ethereum blockchain, which provides transparency into your transactions. Tlon is not responsible for any information you make public on the Ethereum blockchain by taking actions through the Interface.


We make reasonable efforts to protect your information by using physical and electronic safeguards designed to improve the security of the information we maintain. However, as our Services are hosted electronically, we can make no guarantees as to the security or privacy of your information.

Children's privacy

Children under 13 are not allowed to use our Services. We do not knowingly collect, maintain, or use personal information from children under 13 years of age, and no part of the Service is directed to children. If you learn that a child has provided us with personal information in violation of this Privacy Policy, then you may alert us at [email protected].

International visitors

Tlon’s services are offered globally. By using our Services, you authorize us to transfer and store your information outside of your home country for the purposes described in this policy. Please note that the privacy protections and the rights of authorities to access your personal information in such countries may not be equivalent to those in your home country.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We will post any adjustments to the Privacy Policy on this page, and the revised version will be effective when it is posted. If we materially change the ways in which we use or share personal information previously collected from you through the Services, we will notify you through the Services, by email, or other communication.
