This privacy statement is effective January 1, 2014.
This privacy statement supplements the general collection and use of personal information collected from Accenture websites, as set out in our Accenture Privacy Statement which will apply to the data we collect from you.
Scope and Application
This privacy statement explains how Accenture collects and uses the personal data of users of the Accenture Sky Journey application (Application) on a mobile device. Any changes we may make to our privacy statement in future will be posted on this page. The Application is a video game challenging players to use Accenture technology, consulting, and outsourcing offerings to help their business stay ahead of the competition. The Application highlights Accenture’s innovative approach to creating business value and provides links to our real-world services, as well as opportunities to explore careers with Accenture.
This Application is offered by Accenture for use by the general public, but is designed for those interested in a career with Accenture.
What information does the Application collect and how is it used?
Accenture collects information via its Application indirectly (for example through our Application’s technology).
We may collect and process the following information:
Automatically Collected Information – The Application may collect certain information automatically (including via a third party vendor on our behalf using an analytics tracking tool), such as the type of mobile device you use, a randomly generated device I.D. created upon installation, your mobile operating system, and your IP address. The Application may also collect information about the way you use the Application which would include such information as how many levels you complete, how long you play, and how often you read more information about Accenture.
Such information collected by this Application is anonymized and only used in an aggregate form and will be collected and used in accordance with the terms of this privacy statement, the Accenture Privacy Statement, the applicable data privacy laws and Accenture’s internal policies.
You can stop continued collection of information by the Application easily by uninstalling the Application. You may use the standard uninstall processes as may be available as part of your mobile device or via the mobile application marketplace or network. However, please note Accenture will still hold information about you previously collected via the Application.
Does the Application collect precise real time location information of the device?
No, but the Application will use your IP address to determine the country in which you are playing the game. We use your location information 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 Application 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 Application and for a reasonable time thereafter. Please note that some or all of the data may be required in order for the Application 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, Application data we collect may be routed, stored, or transferred internationally throughout Accenture's worldwide organization. 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 do not use the Application to knowingly solicit data from or market to children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with information without their consent, he or she should uninstall the Application from the device.
What are my rights?
You are entitled to know whether we hold personal data about you and, if we do, to have access to that personal data and require it to be corrected if it is inaccurate. You can do this by contacting us using our Contact Us form.
You can exercise your right to prevent marketing communications to you by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your personal data, or by utilizing opt-out mechanisms in e-mails we send to you. You can also exercise the right to discontinue marketing communications to you, or to have your personal data removed from our customer relationship management (CRM) databases at any time by using our Contact Us form.
