What information does the App collect and how is it used?
Accenture collects information via Apps in two ways: (1) directly (for example, when you provide information to log into the App or complete a form within the App), and (2) indirectly (for example through mobile analytic technology).
We may collect and process the following information:
Automatically Collected Information – The App may collect certain information automatically, such as the type of mobile device you use, mobile operating system, the amount of time you spend in the App, and information about the way you use the App. This App may also use certain analytics software that enables Accenture to better understand the functionality used in the App so that Accenture can continue to improve the App. You can stop continued collection of information by the App easily by opting-out of data collection in App Settings section or by uninstalling the App. To uninstall the App you should use the standard uninstall process of your mobile device. However, please note Accenture will retain any previous usage information collected from the App.
Information provided by you – The App may collect information that you voluntarily provide, for example when you register to use the App using a username and password (if applicable) or when completing a survey or requesting information.
We use this information to provide you with information you request and for other purposes which we would describe to you at the point where it is collected or which will be obvious to you. For example:
- To fulfill your requests for content
- For surveys or research questionnaires
- To personalize your experience in our App
- To determine what is effective about our App, how it is used by users and how we might improve it
Such information collected by this App will be collected and used in accordance with the terms of this privacy statement, the Accenture Privacy Statement, applicable data privacy laws and Accenture’s internal policies.
Does the App collect precise real time location information of the device?
This App may collect information about the location of your device if a user opts-in to provide such information. If location information is collected, we use your location information to measure geographic performance of the App and to continue to improve and expand the content we provide, based on geographic location of our end users.
Cookies and other tracking technology
Please see the Accenture Privacy Statement for a description of what cookies are, how Accenture uses these and what to do if you don’t want cookies. By using the App you agree that we can place cookies on your device as explained in the Accenture Privacy Statement.
How long do you keep my information for?
We will retain the data for as long as you use the App and for a reasonable time thereafter. Please note that some or all of the data may be required in order for the App to function properly, and we may be required to retain certain information by law.
Where will my information be processed?
As a global organization with global IT systems, personal data we collect may be routed, stored, or transferred internationally throughout Accenture's worldwide organization or our vendors. We have internal policies in place to ensure an equivalent level of protection is in place across our organization. We may also share personal data with our contracted service providers and advisors who may be located globally and so we may need to transfer your personal data to other countries. Before we do so, we take steps to ensure that your personal data will be given adequate protection as required by relevant data protection laws and Accenture’s internal policies.
We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of personal data collected via the App. Our App may, from time to time, contain links to and from the sites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these sites, please note that these sites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies or sites. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these sites.
