Data Use Policy

Our Data Use Policy

Through your computer, mobile phone, and other digital devices, you leave behind hundreds of digital traces or data: bits of information about you that are created, stored, and collected.

At Tactical Tech we believe it is crucial for users to understand what data is being collected about them.

This is not a “Privacy Policy”

Many websites link to their “privacy policies” from their homepages, but this usually doesn’t mean that your privacy is protected while browsing.

The privacy policy is a compulsory legal disclosure of how the website operator collects, retains, and shares personally identifiable information. In other words, it’s often a list of ways your personal data are not private and under their control.

What do we do with your data?

We will not rent or sell any personally-identifying information to anyone. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Where possible, we aim to provide you with a fully functioning website — even if you do not supply personally-identifying information we request for site functionality.

We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration, or destruction of personally-identifying information.

Do Not Track!

If you enable Do Not Track, we will not track you, but we will count your visit to the website.

What data do we collect?

If you don’t have Do not Track enabled, we may still collect the following anonymous/anonymised information when you visit our website:

  • the time and date you visited the site
  • the first page you visit
  • how many times you click on links
  • how long you stayed on the site
  • the last page you visit before leaving
  • what site brought you to the page (if you followed a link form another page, like on a search engine or social media)
  • what sites you visited through links on our site
  • what you download from our site
  • what keyword or keywords you used if you found the site through a search engine
  • what browser you use
  • some of the plugins you use on your browser
  • what operating system you use
  • what kind of device you use (computer vs smartphone vs feature phone)
  • what brand device you use
  • what model device you use
  • your country
  • your IP address (we anonymise Visitors' IP addresses in our stats)
  • your screen resolution
  • language of your browser
  • number of times you have visited the site
  • days since the last time you visited the site

But I am using a VPN!

VPNs can obscure your IP address and your country location, but some data may still be visible. If you use a VPN while visiting our website, and you haven’t enabled DNT, we would see all of the above information, save your IP address and country location, which would show the IP address and country of the exit point of your VPN.

I am actually using TOR

Just as when you are using a VPN, we can still access the above information. Furthermore, if we wanted to, we could go back through the exit node IP Addresses which are routinely published by Tor and determine if you are using TOR. We will also see similar information if you visit this site through our Onion service .


A cookie is a set of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, which the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. As a general privacy practice, we advice you to routinely delete cookies stored in your browser.

Data Use Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Tactical Tech may change its Data Use Policy from time to time on any of its websites, and at Tactical Tech’s sole discretion. We encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to our Data Use Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change to this Data Use Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.

Reusing this Data Use Policy

You are welcome to reuse and be inspired by this Data Use Policy after making sure it complies with the way your website tracks, uses and discloses users information.
