We are Wawiwa Tech Training, a brand name and commercial activity of G.L. I.T. Way Ltd., an Israeli companysimply referenced here as “Wawiwa”. You can find our contact details below.

Wawiwa bridges the tech skills gap by reskilling people for tech professions in high demand. Wawiwa is a tech education provider from Israel, which establishes local tech training centers with Partners around the world. 

Wawiwa may provide its Partners around the world with various technology Platforms for the operations of their training centers, such as a Learning Management System (LMS) or a Vocational Assessment Platform.

Our Partners control the data processed on their behalf on Wawiwa Platforms and they are responsible under our mutual agreements for handling any data rights and data requests as Data Controllers for their Trainees’ information.

To make things clear with an example: if you are a Trainee at a Wawiwa training center operated by our Partner in your home country, then you are a Trainee, the training center operator is our Partner and has full control over your personal data, and we process your personal data on our Partner’s behalf and according to its instructions.

Partners, Contacts, and Visitors

We process your details on our servers, computers, and systems; cloud hosting services; CRM services; team collaboration services; billing systems; email and SMS communication services; and backup systems. We may share some of your details with our staff, subsidiaries, affiliates, contractors, consultants, resellers, and other third-party business partners for research and analysis, cooperation opportunities, joint promotions, sales, and events.

Wawiwa Platforms

For the delivery of our services, we share all Trainee and data on the Platforms with the Partner who is the Data Controller with respect to such data. Our Partners may select to share the information with others, as stated in their respective Privacy Policies.

Everybody

We may share data with our staff, subsidiaries, affiliates, and contractors for the provision of our services and our operations.

We use additional processors around the world for various processing activities needed for the performance of our Websites, the Platforms, our Services, our operations, and our business, and share information with such processors on a need basis. Such processors include hosting and backup providers (such as Intechgrade T.G Ltd.), analytics providers (such as Google, Hotjar), website technology (such as WordPress and WordPress plug-ins), advertising technology (such as Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Taboola, Outbrain), communication services (such as Microsoft 365, Mailchimp), team collaboration tools (such as Trello), CRM services (such as PowerLink), Assessment tools (such as Veritas), LMS (such as Blossom), telecommunication services, security technology, and more. We limit the information we share with each processor based on the business need in using such a processor, to protect your information while still effectively benefiting from the services of such processor.

We may need to share your information with law enforcement agencies, courts of law, and other governmental organizations, if ordered to do so by competent bodies and according to applicable law.

9) How Do We Safeguard Your Personal Data?

We take information security very seriously. We implement the state of the art security standards to prevent unauthorized or excessive access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information. We encrypt all major data communication transmissions to avoid interception and securely backup the information on the Platforms to avoid data loss. We also implement appropriate organizational measures to protect your information.

We apply our security standards also when working with business and technology partners. We only select and contract with processors and third parties who use appropriate security measures and provide sufficient guarantees, including technical and organizational measures, to ensure the appropriate protection of the data we entrust with them. Unfortunately, although we make every effort to keep your data safe, we cannot fully ensure or warrant the security of your personal information.

10) Do We Transfer Personal Data Internationally?

Most of our information is stored over the cloud in Israel. Our management, sales, marketing, and customer support are also located in Israel. 

At the same time, our business is international – we serve Partners that operate training centers around the world and make use of our services and the Platforms, and we utilize additional processors and service providers in various countries. Therefore, we transfer, store or otherwise process your personal information in other countries. We take appropriate safeguards in the selection of our processing vendors around the world to require that your personal information is well protected. Despite our efforts, it may be the case that a country where your personal information is processed has different, or less protective, data protection and privacy regulation than the country you live in.

11) For How Long Do We Keep Personal Data?

We keep personal information we collect for different periods, depending on the type of information, for example: the period of our contract with our Partners, legal requirements regarding certain types of data, and other factors. Generally speaking, we will retain your personal information for a period reasonably needed to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. We will also retain your personal information for as long as necessary to resolve disputes, enforce our rights and agreements, and protect our staff and Partners.

If we no longer need your information for the purposes mentioned in this Privacy Policy, we will delete or anonymize it. On certain occasions we might not be able to fully delete or anonymize your personal information due to technical or operational reasons, for example deleting from backup storage and archives. In such cases, we shall take reasonable measures to secure any information still maintained by us according to our standard data security practices.

Please be aware that our Partners may also retain on their own systems and computers copies of personal data collected through the Platforms, even after we completed the provision of our services, ended our contractual relationships, and deleted or anonymized any data related to Partners’ Trainees on the Platforms. Such data retention by Partners is subject to their Privacy Policy, purposes, legal bases, agreements with data subjects, and any applicable law. We take no responsibility over Partners’ use of personal data outside of the Platforms.

12) What Are Your Rights With Respect to Your Personal Data?

If you’re a Trainee using the Platforms as part of a Partner program, please approach such Partner to exercise any rights you may have, as they are the Data Controllers of your personal information. Otherwise, please contact us (details below).

According to the data protection and privacy regulation where you live, you may have certain rights with respect to your personal information.

Your rights may include, under certain terms and conditions set in the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), or other applicable law:

  • Right of Access to your personal data processed by us;

  • Right to Rectification of inaccurate or incomplete personal data;

  • Right to Erasure of your personal data (“Right to be Forgotten”);

  • Right to Restriction of Processing for a certain period or under certain conditions;

  • Right to Data Portability of your personal data to another data controller in a structured format;

  • Right to Object the processing of your personal data. Specifically, you have the right to object further processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes;

  • Right to Opt-Out from the Sale of your personal data – to opt-out, please contact us;

  • Right Not To Be Subject to a Decision Based Solely on Automated Decision-Making. We do not make any decisions with legal effect based on automated decision-making; our Partners using the Assessment Platform to evaluate a candidate’s fit to specific tech programs also do not make decisions solely based on the Assessment’s results, but rather defer the decision to the candidate and a human manager at the training center.

  • Right Not To Be Discriminated Against for exercising Privacy rights;

  • Right to File a Complaint with the applicable data protection authority in your country.

After deletion or anonymization of your personal data following its retention period, the rights to access, erasure, rectification, and data portability cannot be enforced.

Your personal information is processed based on several legal bases, sometimes including your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time. Other legal bases, including statutory or contractual requirements that apply to you or our Partner might remain intact even following the withdrawal of your consent.

13) Do We Ever Change Our Privacy Policy?

Occasionally, we change this Privacy Policy to accommodate product and service development, industry standards, or new regulation. If we have your contact details, we will let you know personally if such changes are material, and seek consent for the updated Privacy Policy where required and as needed.

Please read the latest Privacy Policy available here from time to time. Note that we may require your consent to our up-to-date Terms of Service and Privacy Policy whenever you use our Websites or the Platforms. If you do not agree to these terms and policy, please do not use our services.

14)  Who Can You Contact Regarding Your Personal Data?

If you’re a Trainee using the Platforms, please contact our Partner first with any issue, as they are the Data Controllers of your personal information.

When you contact us to exercise your rights, we will verify your request and identity. Depending on your residence, you might be able to designate an authorized agent to exercise these rights on your behalf, but we will require proof that the agent is authorized to act on your behalf and may also still ask you to verify your identity with us directly.
