When an End User uses an application with WalkMe Mobile, we may collect a randomly generated identifier which by default does not contain Personal Information but which may link to Personal Information if Customer actively chooses for it to do so; timestamp; phone number; masked IP address; and general location information, based on algorithms, to guess if you are using the application from home or from work, however this information does not include your precise geolocation.

Some of the data and information we collect can indirectly be used to identify you, while other data and information (such as your location or how often you use a certain app) can only be used to identify you when combined with other information. We also use some of this data and information in an aggregate form that does not identify you personally.

The system starts to collect data as soon as WalkMe Mobile is integrated to the Customer’s application.

Such service provider may be located in a country that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction. When WalkMe transfers data to a service provider, we seek when practical to transfer data only upon executing an appropriate agreement and/or after the certification of the service provider under the E.U.-U.S. Privacy Shield and/or with service providers that are located in a country recognized by the E.U. Council as providing adequate protection; or (j) pursuant to your explicit approval prior to the disclosure.

For avoidance of doubt, WalkMe may transfer Personal Information to its affiliates which shall be obligated with the same restrictions as agreed with the Customer and as specified in this Privacy Policy.

e.    Modification or Deletion of Personal Information Gathered Trough WalkMe Mobile

Users may have a legal right under certain applicable laws (for instance if the User is an E.U. citizen) or under Controller’s (as defined in the General Section) privacy policy to receive, rectify, erase, and restrict Personal Information about them that is held by us, to object to processing and, if processing occurs based on consent, to withdraw their consent. Users may also have the right to withdraw consent for processing for statistical and research purposes.

If for any reason a User wishes to modify, delete or retrieve his/her Personal Information, s/he may do so by contacting the applicable Controller (as defined in the General Section) (e.g. the provider of the platform on which the WalkMe System is operating). The Controller shall perform the necessary process to identify the User as a User who has a the right to retrieve the specific information and then furnish to WalkMe the data required to be amended, deleted or retrieved together with a specific identification of the User and data (as shall be applicable for the specific Service provided and the requested data – for instance IP address and time of uploading the information to WalkMe’s servers (IP address is not enough for an identification of User or data)). WalkMe cannot retrieve data without a specific identification of User and data. WalkMe may not be able to delete, amend or retrieve User’s information without the Controller’s instructions and authorization.

Please note that Personal Information may be either deleted or retained in an anonymized manner (i.e. without being linked to any identifiers or Personal Information) depending on technical commercial capability. Such anonymized information may continue to be used by WalkMe for the purpose of operating the Service.

For any request or question regarding deletion or amendment of User data, you can contact us at the contact details listed in the General Section and we shall make efforts to respond and support your request.
