especially in this case

why storing data in /tmp and search how to change behavior of the
OS instead simply use another directory and accept that /tmp is
NOT a place where you can expect your data are alive at any time
later?

mkdir /mytmp
chmod 1777 /mytmp

so, now you have a folder with the same permissions as /tmp
everybody can store files there, only the owner have access
to them and nothing of the OS is touching it
