Unless we ask for your explicit consent, by accessing or using our Services, you accept the data practices and terms detailed in this Policy. If you do not agree with this Policy, please discontinue your access or use of the Services immediately. This Policy does not apply to services offered by other companies or other sites linked from our Services.
We may update this Policy at any time. You will be notified if we make any material changes to this Policy when you first visit our Services after the change or via email.

Online cookies are small data files that we transfer to your device to collect information about your use of our Services to help us understand you better. Cookies can be recognized by the website that downloaded them or other websites that use the same cookies. This helps websites know if your browsing device has visited them before.
Not all the cookies on our Services are supplied by us (the “first-party cookies”) – some of the cookies on our services are provided by third parties (the “third-party cookies”). Third-party cookies are operated by third parties that can recognize your device across the Internet, such as when you visit other websites or mobile apps. Tomofun does not control how third-party cookies are used, and we encourage you to check the websites of any third-party cookie providers for more information about how they use cookie information (see below for more information).
Tomofun collects more than just cookie data! We use other tracking technologies similar to cookies, such as flash cookies, web beacons, or pixels. These technologies also help us understand how you use our Services in the following ways:
- Flash Cookies: We may use "flash cookies" (also known as “Local Shared Objects” or "LSOs") to collect information about your use of our Services. Flash cookies are commonly used for advertisements and videos.
- Web Beacons: Web beacons (also known as “clear gifs”) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. Web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages and do not store information on your device like cookies. We use web beacons to help us better manage content on our Services and other similar reasons to cookies.
We generally refer to cookies, web beacons, flash cookies and pixels as “cookies” in this Policy.
When you use our Services via a mobile device (e.g., tablet, smartphone etc.), we may access, collect, monitor, and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers,” such as a unique device identifier (“UDID”). A device identifier is a small data file which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier gives us information about your device’s browsing and use of the Services.
A device identifier may remain persistently on your device, to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the Service. Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.
Tomofun generally treats data collected by cookies and other tracking technologies as non‑personal information. However, to the extent that cookies collect IP addresses or similar identifiers that are considered personal information by local law, we also treat cookie information with identifiers as personal information. If we combine non-personal information with personal information, then the combined information will be treated as your personal information for as long as it remains combined.
Cookies help us provide you our Services, understand your needs and wants, and so much more! For example, cookies can tell us how long you spent on a page, whether you experienced any technical issues on our Services, or whether certain parts of our Services are used more than others. This information is very valuable to us because it helps us serve you better. Tomofun also uses advertising cookies because they help us with marketing our products and services to you based on your interests and preferences. For example, you may see advertisements about Tomofun when you leave our Services.
We use the cookies described below on our Services:
Categories of Cookies
Some of the cookies we use are necessary to provide our Services to you. For example, these cookies help you access secure parts of our website, flag any technical errors for us, and help us detect, prevent, and mitigate malicious and fraudulent activities on our Services. Without such cookies, some of our Services cannot be provided to you.
Some of the best parts of our Services would not be possible without functional cookies! Functional cookies collect information about how you use our Services, provide you with certain functions on our Services, and they remember your preferences. For example, these cookies allow our Services to remember your country selection or your display name as you navigate through our Services. Basically, functional cookies make you feel right at home when using our Services
