Bank of Tanzania does not use "cookies." (A cookie is an entry

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.
