Purpose of information
From time to time, you will be asked to provide your personal information (e.g. name and email address, etc.) in order to access or use the services available on our website. These services include newsletters, competitions, “Unsubscribe”, live chats, message boards and Tanzania Tech membership.
By providing your details in the spaces provided, you allow Tanzania Tech and its service providers to provide you with the services you have requested. Whenever you provide your personal information, we will store that information in accordance with this policy. Our services are intended to provide you with the information you want. Tanzania Tech will comply with current laws and will endeavour to implement current best practices for the Internet.
Any information provided by cookies can help us give you better service and help us monitor visitor reputation. For example: if you visited our pages last time, say you entered into the hacks pages, then we can find this information in your cookie and a description of the hacks will appear when you enter again.
These cookies and the website marker provide us with non-personal statistics about visits to our pages, the time spent viewing the page, the routes used by visitors on the website, the data contained in the visitor’s screen settings and other standard information. Tanzania Tech uses this information, and the information obtained from other cookies used on the website, to help improve the service to its users.
If you want to reject a cookie, you may not be able to use our website properly and you can use the procedure set out below in section 7 to disable the marker on the web. To disable (remove) the marker on the web, you should send your request directly to [email protected].
When you enter the network your computer will be given a cookie. Cookies are text files that identify your computer to our network engine that stores all memories (server). The cookies themselves do not identify the user, but only the computer used. Many web companies do this when a user visits their pages in order to know how people access and leave the network.
Cookies record the network areas that the computer in question has visited, and for how long. Users have the opportunity to enable all cookies, notify them when a cookie is given out, or not receive cookies at any time. This latter point means that certain personal services cannot be offered to the user.

Use and Storage of Your Personal Information
When you provide any personal information to Tanzania Tech (e.g. for competitions, Tanzania Tech Community social services or Tanzania Tech membership), we have a legal obligation to you to look at how we use that data.
We must collect this information fairly, which means that we are obliged to tell you how we will use that data (see advertisements on relevant pages that explain why we are requesting that information) and tell you if we want you to send that information to anyone else. Generally, any information you provide to Tanzania Tech will be used within Tanzania Tech and its service providers. They will not be sent to anyone outside Tanzania Tech without your consent, except where we are obliged or allowed by law to disclose that information.
In the same way, if you send or submit insulting or inappropriate information about Tanzania Tech or to Tanzania Tech Media, it will be considered bad and/or repeated behavior, and Tanzania Tech may use any information available about you to stop this behavior. This includes informing other people such as your employer, school, or email service provider about the content of your writing or your behavior.
We will keep your personal information in our systems for as long as you use the service you requested, and we may remove it when the purpose is achieved, or when it comes to your Tanzania Tech membership, you decide that you no longer want to continue your registration as a Tanzania Tech member. However, for security reasons, Tanzania Tech may retain message text data (including content, names and members, time and date) resulting from the use of Tanzania Tech’s social services (Tanzania Tech Community) for six months. Where personal information is stored for unregistered individuals who have participated in other Tanzania Tech services (such as competitions), such information will be kept for a period deemed appropriate to ensure that these services are run properly. We will ensure that the personal information provided is securely stored in accordance with the 1998 Data Protection Act.
If you have been informed on the Tanzania Tech website that your information may be used to enable Tanzania Tech to contact you for “administrative services,” this means that Tanzania Tech may contact you for several reasons related to the service you registered for. For example, we may provide you with news services via email or notify you that the relevant service is suspended for maintenance. We will not contact you to provide advertising, such as informing you about improving our services or new Tanzania Tech programs, unless you explicitly agree that we contact you for such purposes when you provide your information on the website, or later if you register for specific purposes to receive such advertising information.
Accessing Your Personal Information
You have the right to request a copy of your personal information held by Tanzania Tech and correct any errors. (These services are available through our Apps or if you leave comments on our website and other Tanzania Tech services).
Users Under 16 Years Old
If you are under the age of 16 or younger, please obtain permission from your parent/guardian whenever you want to provide your information on the Tanzania Tech website.
