Visitors are not required to provide any personal data or information on the public areas of this website. However, a visitor to our site may choose to provide information such as name, title, office address, office email address and telephone number in order to for example:

Demographic information, including gender and occupation, is not actively sought, but may be submitted when a visitor responds to an online job application. It is PwC Hungary's policy to limit the information collected to only the minimum information required to complete a visitor's request. In any instance where non-mandatory information is sought, the visitor will be notified of this at the point of collection.

We do not collect sensitive personal data through this site.

Use of data

When a visitor provides personal data to us, we use it solely for the purposes for which it was provided to us as stated at the point of collection (or as is obvious from the context of collection).

 

Disclosure to third parties

Our policy is not to share personal data with any third parties, unless required by law, or unless explicitly requested by a visitor or otherwise as set out in this section. We recognise that your information is valuable and we take all reasonable measures to protect your information while it is in our care.

Personal data which has been submitted to us may be disclosed across geographical borders to other member firms or associated firms in the PwC network of firms, or any third parties working with us or on our behalf where this is necessary to meet the purpose for which the visitor has submitted the information. We may also store personal data in a jurisdiction other than where the visitor is based. However, we have taken steps to ensure that all such entities protect information and data adequately. In relation to any other third parties we will only disclose information where the visitor has given consent or where we are required to do so by law, or where it is necessary for the purpose of, or in connection with legal proceedings or in order to exercise or defend legal rights. By submitting personal data to this site, the visitor is providing explicit consent to such transfer – including transborder transfer - of data.

We encourage visitors to review each site's privacy policy before disclosing any personally identifiable information.

Security

We have implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect personally identifiable data and information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. However, despite our best efforts, security cannot be absolutely guaranteed against all threats. To the best of our ability, we ensure that all appropriate confidentiality obligations and technical and organisational security measures are in place to prevent any unauthorised or unlawful disclosure or processing of such information and data, and the accidental loss or destruction of or damage to such information and data. Only authorised personnel are provided access to such information and these employees have agreed to ensure confidentiality of this information.

When personal data is retained, we do not assume responsibility for verifying the ongoing accuracy of such data. When practically possible, if we are informed that any personal data collected through this website is no longer accurate, we will make appropriate corrections based on the updated information provided by the authenticated visitor.

As a policy, visitors are not required to register to gain access to areas of this websites. In certain cases we may require visitors to register in order to obtain a user-id and password for authentication and secure access to a transaction or certain business confidential or proprietary information services on premium websites.

Data retention

Personal data submitted to us will only be retained for as long as is required for the purposes for which it was collected or as required by law.

For example, contact information about visitors (such as information generated though registration for access to areas on the site) will be kept as long as the information is required to completely service the contact request or until a user requests that we delete that information. Mailing list information and emails are kept for only the period of time considered reasonable to facilitate the visitor’s requests.

Resumes are disposed of when they are either no longer under consideration, or are considered out-dated by our Human Resources departments.

Cookies and log files

PwC Hungary automatically collects certain types of information in some instances when visitors visit our websites and through emails that we may exchange. Automated technologies may include the use of "cookies" and web server logs to collect IP addresses. The collection of this information will allow us to better understand and improve the performance, usability and effectiveness of our websites and to measure effectiveness of our marketing activities.

”Cookies” - We use small text files called ‘cookies’ which are placed on visitors’ hard drives to assist in providing a more customised website experience. For example, a cookie can be used to store registration information in an area of the site so that a user does not need to re-enter it on subsequent visits to that area. Site statistics are compiled by third parties, and therefore IP addresses will be passed to third parties for statistical reporting only.

The use of cookies is now standard operating procedure for most websites. However if you are uncomfortable with the use of cookies, most browsers now permit users to opt-out of receiving them. In that case you will be unable to use this registration process and may find other functionality in the site impaired. After termination of the visit to our site, you can always delete the cookie from your system if you wish.

Log files - In order to properly manage our website we may anonymously log information on our operational systems, and identify categories of visitors by items such as domains and browser types. These statistics are reported in the aggregate to our webmasters. This is to ensure that our website presents the best web experience for visitors and is an effective information resource.

Modifications

PwC Hungary reserves the right to modify or amend this privacy statement at any time. Any significant changes to this statement will be clearly indicated at our website.
