Privacy Policy


1. Introduction

Thank you for visiting This site is owned and operated by Black Tomato. For purposes of the policy, references to “we,” “our,” and “us” mean Black Tomato. This Site provides a wide range of information to our Site’s visitors. Like many websites, we also collect information from our visitors, including personal data (your full name, e-mail address, phone number) and non-personal data (e.g. aggregate statistics about what parts of our Site are most popular). This privacy policy is designed to tell you about our information collection practices at this site – that is, the ways we collect information; what kinds of information we collect; why we collect information; how we use information we collect; with whom we share information we collect; how you can access, amend, and delete information we collect from you; and what kinds of security we use to protect information you provide. Before using this site – and particularly before submitting personal data via this site – you should read this entire policy. Use of this site constitutes your agreement to the terms of this policy. If the terms and conditions of the policy are not acceptable to you, do not submit any personal data via this site.

2. Scope of Policy

Please be aware that this policy applies only to this site. Within this site, you may see links or references to other websites which are not covered by this policy and are likely to have different information practices. We therefore encourage you to read the privacy policy of each website you visit. We provide these references and links for your convenience; they should not be construed as an endorsement of such sites, their content, or their information practices. You are solely responsible for any interactions you may have with such websites.

3. Active Information Collection

This site collects information from its visitors in two ways: actively and passively. Active information collection refers to instances in which we gather information from you when you fill it in and send it to us, such as by completing a registration form, signing up for an electronic newsletter, or sending us a message via an e-mail reply mechanism provided by this site. Active information collection can include both personal data (e.g. your full name or information that is unique to you) and non-personal data (e.g. if we were to ask for your first name and a list of the top three things you like about our site). Passive information collection refers to instances in which we collect information from you that you have not actively provided (please see the next section of this policy for a summary of our passive information collection practices).

Registration Information: If you are interested in receiving electronic updates, alerts, and other information from us regarding this site and our products and services, you must provide us with an e-mail address. In completing your registration, we may also ask for optional information, such as how you found us, to help us better serve you in the future.

Feedback Information: We welcome your comments and feedback regarding this Site and our products, services and programs. This Site provides an e-mail address that permits you to send us your own e-mail address, comments, and any other information you choose to include. E-mail is not secure. As a result, you should carefully consider what information you wish to send to us via e-mail.

4. Passive Information Collection

We may use special technologies to passively collect information while you are visiting (that is, you do not actively provide this information). These technologies allow us to collect certain kinds of non-personal data, including your Internet domain name, the type of web browser you use, the operating system you use, the date and time of your visit, the specific pages you visit, and the address of the website you visited prior to entering We do not link this passively collected non-personal data with personal data you have actively provided elsewhere on this site. We reserve the right to share with third parties, including our business partners and advertisers, the anonymous aggregated information that we have passively collected via this site. Below we have summarised the primary means of passive information collection at our Site.

Cookies: This site uses cookies, which are small text files that store non-personal data about you, either temporarily in connection with your Internet Protocol (IP) address (known as a temporary or session cookie, and deleted once you close your browser window) or more permanently on the hard drive of your computer (known as a permanent or persistent cookie). This Site uses session cookies so that you do not have to fill in the same information from page to page within If you elect not to receive cookies, you may be able to view some, but not all, of the content on this Site. Specifically, this Site uses gtag.js Google Analytics cookies to measure user-interactions, to record the pages a user has seen (for example, the page’s URL) and to “remember” the user’s previous interactions with these web pages. Google Analytics does not store any personal information about our website users. gtag.js uses the _ga and _gid cookies to distinguish unique users, and uses the _gat cookie to throttle the request rate.

Internet Protocol (IP) Addresses: This site uses Internet protocol (IP) addresses. IP addresses are unique identifiers automatically assigned to each computer when logging onto the Internet. IP addresses allow us to collect much of the same information we collect through cookies, including browser type, what pages you visit, and how long you stay on the site. In general, IP addresses allow us to identify problems with our servers, prepare aggregate demographic information and other information regarding this use of this site, and improve the functions of this site.

9. Date Security

If we do change the Policy, the new Policy will be posted here, along with its revision date, and all information collected following the posting of such changes will be subject to the new Policy.
