Wandera has developed a solution for the global market and has optimized its product to meet the strongest of regulations. Many countries have data privacy regulations in place that may affect the installation of a solution such as Wandera. Wandera recommends seeking legal advice and following internal procedures before deploying Wandera’s Service.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The installation of the Wandera service falls under the GDPR’s “Legitimate Interests”. This regulation (article 6(1)(f)) gives the controller (customer) a lawful basis for processing under most circumstances when using Wandera. The use of the service does not require explicit consent from the individual end user to install the solution. Companies acting as controllers operating within the European Union are advised to undertake a Legitimate Interest Assessment to ensure that they can install Wandera without requiring consent.
End users have the right to transparency regarding the data collected by Wandera on behalf of their employer and have the right to object and ask for the reasoning behind the collection.
Wandera suggests giving end users access to a privacy notice tailored to the company’s specific environment and recommends consulting internal compliance and legal teams on these matters before proceeding with employee communications.
The EU-US Privacy Shield
Wandera Inc. falls under the jurisdiction of the Federal Trade Commision and its investigatory and enforcement powers. It adheres to the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and its principles. Wandera’s other entities (listed in section 14) all adhere to the same principles.
This adherence includes the formal complaint procedures. If Wandera receives a written and complaint, it will contact the person who made the complaint to follow up within the timelines set by the framework. If an issue cannot be resolved internally, Wandera will cooperate with the European Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) as a recourse mechanism in the investigation and resolution of complaints brought under the Privacy Shield. You can contact them to resolve any disputes free of charge if needed.
Under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks, Wandera is responsible for the processing of information we receive from the EU and the United Kingdom, as well as onward transfers to a third party acting as an agent on our behalf. We comply with the Privacy Shield Principles for such onward transfers and remain liable in accordance with the Privacy Shield Principles if any third party agents that we engage with process such information on our behalf. This is the case if they do so in a manner that is not consistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, unless it is proven that Wandera are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
Wandera will comply with any advice given by the DPAs where the DPAs take the view that the organization needs to take specific action to comply with the Privacy Shield Principles, including remedial or compensatory measures for the benefit of individuals affected by any non-compliance with the Principles, and will provide the DPAs with written confirmation that such action has been taken.
