The Wanda website and mobile app are built by the Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM) as a free tool for travellers. ITM is responsible for the personal data processing and aims to process data in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679. This policy inform you about your personal data processing when you use this service.
Which personal data does Wanda collect and for which purpose?
Wanda collects very little information about you. It collects device’s IP address and browsing information when using the website or app (see below) and you can assign your country of destination.
This information is used to provide the service, improve ease of use and also for us to gain insight in how the service is used and how we can continuously improve it.
Mobile app users can allow the app to collect GPS location data. GPS location data may allow us to send you push messages with relevant health information if you wish, e.g. in case of a disease outbreak in a specific area.
Access by other parties
We may employ service providers for the following reasons:
- To facilitate our service.
- To provide the service on our behalf.
- To perform service-related services.
- To assist us in analysing how our service is used.
Service providers may have access to your information, for tasks assigned to them on our behalf. However, they are obligated not to disclose or use the information for any other purpose.
Cookies are small files that are commonly used as anonymous unique identifiers. They can have multiple purposes, e.g. to improve your browsing experience or to perform analytics of site or app use. These cookies are sent to your browser from the websites that you visit and are stored on your device.
ITM makes every effort to treat your data as confidentially and securely as possible. We take the necessary security measures to limit the risk of unauthorised access, loss or disclosure (e.g. by hacking). Remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure and reliable.
