What Does the Froedtert Finder Mobile Application Do? Does It Access Personal Information if I Use It?
The Froedtert Finder mobile application can be used for driving directions, parking assistance and locating the quickest path to an appointment, office or building location before entering any building and after going inside. If you decide to use Froedtert Finder to get driving directions, our mobile application will first ask you if you want to use your mobile device’s navigation tool — Google Maps, Apple Maps or Waze. If you consent, then the Froedtert Finder mobile application will transmit the street address where you are at when you start your route and the street address of your destination to the navigation tool of your choice. The mobile application accesses location services to enable you to launch a route from a shared link (Meet Me feature) or appointment reminder and to detect when you have arrived onsite and parking your car, even when the mobile application is closed or not in use. We do not access, collect or store this personal information, but Google Maps, Apple Maps and Waze might, so we encourage you to review their privacy notices to learn more:
Once you arrive at your location, the Froedtert Finder mobile application will help you find a parking spot close to your appointment. After you park, the location of your car — its latitude, longitude and altitude — will be stored locally on your device until you drive away from the hospital/healthcare facility that you visited. The Froedtert Finder mobile application will ask if you want to delete this information from your device and the information is stored or deleted based on your choice. We do not access, collect, use or store this personal information, but you should check your navigation tool’s privacy notice to learn whether the tool uses your parking information.
Does The Froedtert Finder Mobile Application Access Personal Information Or Track Me After I Go Inside The Facility To My Appointment?
After you enter a facility, Froedtert & MCW use Bluetooth Low Energy (“BLE”) beacons to transmit a signal to the Froedtert Finder mobile application on your device to guide you to your appointment. No user or device information is exchanged with BLE beacons, and the beacon’s signal is not stored on your device.
Your Consent and Permission
By using the Froedtert Finder mobile application, you consent to our collection and use of your personal information as described in this Policy. We want to make every effort to keep you informed and aware of how we are protecting your privacy and the ways in which your personal information is used.
