Privacy Policy

  1. Our Service

Welcome to, a website where all Africans meet. We intend to promote Africa for Africa, share ideas, and support each other.

We invite you to read this Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”), which explains our privacy practices and how we handle your personal information collected through TuKonnect, as well as through social media, our marketing activities, our live events, and other activities described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy also explains how we use and share such information and the choices you have.

We use “TuKonnect” to refer to the TuKonnect websites and our iOS and Android apps (also referred to as our “Services”).

Unless otherwise indicated, this Privacy Policy applies to all of our Services in all geographies in which TuKonnect offers its Services.

  1. What information is collected?

We may collect personal information from you, through technology that automatically collects information from your browser or device, and third-party sources. See below for examples. Note that not all TuKonnect account types and features are available in all locations, so some of the examples below may not apply where you live. We may also collect personal information that is not specifically listed below, which we use consistent with this Privacy Policy or as otherwise described at the time of collection.

2.1. From you.

  • Your contact details.

○ When you sign up for TuKonnect, you may provide your name, address, phone number, profile photo, email address, location, date of birth, gender, demographic information, and similar information.

○ If you contact support, you may provide us with your contact information and a description of the issue so we can respond.

  • Data from other accounts. If you use a third party, like Facebook, Google, or Apple to log in to TuKonnect (or later connect your third party account to your TuKonnect account), then you authorize the third party to share your personal information with us, including your name, photo, email address, and any other information you agree to share.

  1. What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file containing a unique identifier that is placed in the web browser of your computer or mobile device when you visit a site. Cookies and similar technologies (which include pixels, tags, web beacons, software development kits (“SDKs”), and local browser storage technologies) (together “cookies”) enable operators of sites/apps to recognize your device and collect information from it when you interact with them. They use this information to understand how the site/app is being used, remember user preferences, and improve users’ browsing experience. Cookies are also used to make the advertising you see online more relevant to your interests.

  1. What is a mobile advertising identifier?

Most major phones and tablets include a mobile advertising identifier (e.g., an IDFA on iOS and an ADID on Android) that is a unique device identifier that enables third parties to connect you to your activities on that app to your activities on other unrelated apps and websites. This is generally used for personalizing advertising and measurement of advertising campaigns. Even without a mobile advertising identifier, you’d still see advertising but those ads may be less relevant to you.

  1. Who places cookies on my device?

Cookies set by the site you visit are called “first party cookies” (i.e., cookies placed by TuKonnect). Cookies set by other parties are called “third-party cookies.” Third-party cookies enable third party features or functionality within the site, such as site analytics, advertising, and social media features. The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your computer or device both when it visits the site/app in question and also when it visits certain other sites/apps. We do not control how these third parties use your information, which is subject to their own privacy policies. See the table below for details of the use of third-party cookies and similar technologies on TuKonnect.

3. What cookies does TuKonnect use, and why?

The cookies used on our Services are categorized as follows:

  • Strictly necessary cookies
  • Functional cookies
  • Targeting cookies
  • Performance cookies

Strictly necessary cookies are necessary for our Services to function. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of our Services will not work and we will not be able to guarantee how the security on our Services will perform during your visit.

Functional cookies enable us to provide you with enhanced functionality and personalization. If you do not add these cookies then some of our Services may not function properly.

Targeting cookies are used to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant information and advertisements. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

Performance cookies collect information about how you use our Services (e.g., which pages you visit and if you experience any errors). These cookies are used to help us improve how our Service works, understand what interests our users, and measure how effective our content is. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our site.

TuKonnect uses both session cookies and persistent cookies:

  • We use session cookies to identify you during a particular visit to TuKonnect. Session cookies expire after a short time, or when you close your web browser or app after using TuKonnect.
  • We use persistent cookies to identify you over a long period of time. (For example, if you asked us to keep you signed in, we would use a persistent cookie for that purpose.) Persistent cookies remain on your device for a set period of time specified in the cookie.

We use both first and third-party cookies to operate, understand and improve TuKonnect, specifically:

  • To authenticate you and secure our Services: We use cookies to monitor login, session, and status data. This allows us to know, for example, whether you are logged in.
  • To remember your settings and preferences: We use cookies to recognize your browser and remember your preferences. For example, we use cookies to remember your language preferences.
  • To carry out analytics and research: We use cookies to understand your use of TuKonnect and how we can improve our offerings. For example, we use cookies to track what pages you visit and whether you open emails we send you.
  • To personalize your experience: We use cookies to personalize your use of TuKonnect, including to serve you personalized advertising that may better suit your needs.
  • For fraud, trust and safety, and investigations: We use cookies to keep the Services safe, including to detect and prevent fraud and conduct investigations.
  1. What third-party cookies are used on TuKonnect?

A number of third-party cookies are set on TuKonnect, some of which depend on how you use our Services. In general, the following types of third-party cookies may be set when you use TuKonnect                                     :

  • Social media login cookies: If you register or sign in using a social media log in, they may set a cookie.
  • Analytics cookies: We use analytics cookies to collect traffic data to help us analyze how Members and Visitors access and use TuKonnect and for other analytics services relating to website activity and internet usage.
  • Advertising cookies: The Services allow third-party advertising companies that we work with to use cookies to collect information about how you use TuKonnect and other sites and services over time. These companies use the information they collect to show you ads they believe will be relevant to you on TuKonnect and elsewhere, and to measure how the ads perform.
  • Third-party cookies from content shared by Members: Members may share content on TuKonnect that originates from a third-party website or service, and that third-party website or service may set its own cookies when you interact with that content. For example, if a Member posts a video from YouTube on TuKonnect, YouTube may set a cookie when you click to watch the video.
  • Pixels: Our advertising partners may use pixels or similar technology to measure the success of the sponsored posts or other advertising products they use. A “pixel” (also sometimes called a web beacon, or clear GIF) is a tiny piece of code, invisible to the user, placed on a webpage or in an email and used in combination with a cookie, to link a given activity or impression back to the user; the advertiser includes it in its content so it can measure whether our Members interact with that content (for example, by clicking to view an offer). We may set our own pixel on an advertiser’s website so we can measure whether our Members found the advertiser’s content effective or interesting, by determining whether the sponsored post prompted members to take advantage of the advertised offer. This information helps us assess whether sponsored posts and other advertising offers are relevant and interesting to our Members and successful for the advertiser.

. Can I opt-out of the use of my information for third-party personalized advertising?

Yes, here is how:

  • Browsers. You may refuse or restrict the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, limiting or refusing cookies may affect your ability to use Tukonnect . Some advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising.


  • Mobile apps. Your mobile device may include a feature that allows you to opt out of some types of personalized advertising using your mobile advertising identifier, such as the “limit ad tracking” option in your iOS or Android device’s privacy settings.
