Governments around the world request information about Tumblr users, usually in conjunction with criminal or civil investigations. We carefully scrutinize each request to make sure it complies with the law, and we push back on those requests that don’t satisfy our rigorous standards. When we disclose data we narrowly interpret the request and disclose only as much data as is necessary to comply with the request.
