Bank of Tanzania may automatically collects and store information about your Internet connection when you visit our website. This information includes the following:

  • the date and time that you access our site

  • the pages that you visit

  • if you linked to BOT website from another website, the address of that website

  • the type of browser (for example, Netscape 4.0) used to access our site

  • the IP (Internet Protocol) address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web) from which you access our site

  • the action that you tried to perform (for example, download a document) and whether or not you were successful.

Bank of Tanzania does not use "cookies." (A cookie is an entry placed in a file on your hard drive by a website that allows it to monitor your use of the website, usually without your knowledge.)

Information we Collect and Store When you Give Feedback

If you choose to give us feedback on the website via electronic mail (or if you request additional information from BOT), you will be asked for your name and address and will have the option of providing other information, such as your profession. If you send information to BOT, we will consider that to be your consent for BOT to use the information collected from the message consistent with this policy.

If you provide your name and other information, BOT will maintain the information to process your request or inquiry. BOT employees will see the information in the course of their official duties. In limited circumstances, such as requests the Government of Tanzania or pursuant to a court order, we may be required by law to disclose information you submit.

Please note that e-mail and feedback through the submission of a form is not necessarily secure against interception, and that e-mail and other feedback mechanisms in this website are not encrypted. If your communication is very sensitive, or if it includes personal information like your bank account or information that is regarded as confidential, you might want to send it by postal mail instead of e-mail or the feedback form.

How we Use the Information

Bank of Tanzania uses the information--both the information that is collected automatically and the additional information that you may provide--to measure the volume of requests for specific web-site pages, to improve the website, and to be responsive to user needs and inquiries. BOT may use the IP address information to monitor unusually heavy activity from a single address.

Although questions, comments, and other communications that we receive generally are not retained as permanent records, please note that it is possible that any mail--electronic or paper--that we receive could become part of the permanent record of Bank of Tanzania, if the mail is part of materials that are scheduled for permanent retention.

Security of the Website

For the security of our site and to ensure that the site remains available to all users, BOT employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorised attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. See the Bank's Website Disclaimer for additional information on this issue.
