Today (Aug. 1) Tilia, Linden Lab’s wholly-owned subsidiary, assumes responsibility for handling process credit requests and payments made from accounts with a USD-denominated balance in Second Life.
Due to this change, as originally announced on July 1, Residents who have a USD balance on their account will be prompted to accept the Tilia Terms of Service when they log in to their account on the web. Residents who request to process credit out of Second Life may also need to supply information for ID verification.
Tilia is a registered money services business and fully licensed money transmitter which helps Linden Lab comply with U.S. laws and regulations. You can learn more about Tilia’s work to better protect your privacy and security in this blog post from our Information Security Manager, Soft Linden.
