In the pursuit of a safe and enjoyable experience with us we aim to have full disclosure on our business relationship with you. Please review this document and contact us at the address provided at the end if you still have any questions.


Tantalus uses "cookies" to automatically recognize returning users. A cookie is a small file that resides on your computer identifying you to the server. It then uses this information to display customized data for your convenience. If you block the use of cookies, you will be able to access the public versions of this site but you will not be able to log in to your account.


Any personal information transmitted to us is done via a 128-bit encrypted “Secure Socket Layer” (SSL). See our security statement for more details.

IP Address Logging

Your internet access provider assigns an IP address to your computer to uniquely identify your computer. We log each IP address that accesses the site, along with referring/destination URLs. This as well as other data in our databases is used to analyze access patterns, troubleshoot technical problems, resolve disputes and address complaints. In the event of suspected or criminal activity these logs may be furnished to qualified authorities.

Links to Other Sites

This site contains links to other Web sites. TantalusCoins.com cannot be held responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any other site nor does Tantalus endorse them. If you have concerns about how other Web sites collect and use information about you, make sure to read that site's privacy policy.

Internal Information Handling

The administration of Tantalus is forbidden from using your personal information for any manner or purpose with the exception of facilitating your use of the service. This exception covers the collecting of billing and current contact information, assistance in recovering data including lost passwords or restoring data from backups, technical troubleshooting and similar requests.

Email Policy

There are only two reasons we would ever need to contact you by email.

  1. When you sign up you will have to confirm your registration through a link that is generated by the system automatically. This verifies that you have entered a valid email address.
  2. When your free trial period is about to expire we will email you to alert you and provide you with an option to continue your service.

Any information gathered from you during the course of your use of the site is protected under the same guidelines. With the exception of legal proceedings no personal information will be disseminated for any purpose to other parties without your express consent.
